Artisanal Raw Milk Cheese
Winner – 2013 American Cheese Society Competition *
Winner – 2012 American Cheese Society Competition * Winners – 2012 Big E Gold Cheese Competition **
In 2006, we began our journey and dream to make artisanal raw milk cheese using our own grass fed organic cow’s milk. Four years later, and after lots of education, research, planning, jumping through the regulatory hoops and practicing our cheese making skills, our dream became a reality!
Ray is our primary cheese maker; he brings his love of cheese to the “plate” and those basic chemistry skills that make it all work, and his nose for the “right” smell in the aging rooms. Pamela is the primary contact for marketing, sales and general farm administration.
We currently have six unique farmstead cheeses: Robinson Family Swiss, Tekenink Tomme, Hardwick Stone, Arpeggio, Prescott and A Barndance. All our artisanal cheeses are washed rind, aged at least 120 days (except Arpeggio), made with raw whole milk, and hard or semi-hard in nature. Farmstead cheese from grass fed cows will have slight seasonal variations in flavor and texture, while still reflecting the terroir of the rolling hills of Hardwick.
