We are a family farm located on scenic Clover Creek in Central Pennsylvania. Our farm is 126 acres of pasture and woods. We milk 60-80 Jersey, Ayrshire, Milking Shorthorn, and cross-bred cattle, rotating them to fresh pasture at least after each milking. We milk in a New Zealand style swing parlor, and the whole family (Dad, Mom and 5 Children) is involved in the operation. We plan on the cows calving in March and April and eating the majority of their ration as pasture. In the winter they are fed grass hay. We built our own cheese plant in 2007 and now have our own pasture-fed raw milk cheeses for sale. Our cheese is not another push button cheese. We are a seasonal dairy, making cheese only when the cows are eating fresh green grass. Each vat is filled slowly, using a stainless steel pipeline direct from the milking area. Cultures are then carefully added and the milk is gently stirred by hand, not beaten by stainless steel paddles. After the right amount of time, rennet is added following the age old tradition of making great farmstead cheese. After coagulation, the curds are quickly cut, allowed to rest and heal, and then gently stirred by hand. The curds are eventually packed into molds and pressed by hanging weights for the allotted time. Cheeses are then aged in one of our climate-controlled cellars, on locally grown sugar maple shelving. Instead of suffocating them in plastic, they grow a natural rind that gives additional character and flavor to the cheese. Each wheel is turned, wiped, scrubbed, washed, and watched until it has aged to its greatest potential. At just the right time, we remove them, package them, and sell them to discriminating customers. Welcome to the taste and quality of true farmstead artisan cheese! We hope you enjoy our cheese as much as we enjoy making it!
