Susan and Bill Dietrich started dairy farming in 1974 and moved to the Cumberland Valley in 1978. In 1997 Melanie and her husband, Mark returned to the farm from college and in 2001 started making cheese on the farm as a way to join the family farm without adding any more cows or getting any larger. We rotationally graze our cows and do not use any pesticides or chemicals on our pastures. We do not dock our cows tails and do not use hormones or antibiotics. In Spring of 2006 we added a pasteurizer and started making fresh products like yogurt, soft cheeses and ricotta. Currently, Susan, Melanie and Mark milk 40 registered Jersey cows and use a portion of the milk for raw milk, aged cheeses and fresh cheeses and yogurt. Our cheese are available at select producer-only farmers markets and fine restaurants in Washington, DC and south central Pennsylvania.

The yogurt from Keswick Creamery has the bite of real yogurt. It isn't processed excessively, has a slightly lumpy appearance, but makes a fabulous smoothie, accompaniment to summer fruit, or any other yogurt-based yummy! Their other products are also delicious.... [more]
