Our Family

Growing up on a dairy farm in Minnesota equipped Stuart with the knowledge and love for the land and cows. A dissatisfaction with the current trends in commercial dairying caused Stuart to ask what could be done with a small family-run dairy.

In January of 2000, we, along with our seven children, embarked on our cheesemaking journey. It was a dream of ours that, with hard work and persistence, became a reality. Starting with small beginnings, our operation began with twenty baby calves, which we raised to milking age. We started with one variety of cheese and have continued to grow – currently offering over 15 varieties of artisan raw milk cheeses.

Today, Stuart and Connie, their family(including 9 grandchildren, so far) and Stuart’s parents continue to work together on the farm to produce quality, real food for your table.
