WHAT DO WE DO?

Our goal has always been to produce world-class cheeses that can be enjoyed by people of all walks of life.

 

We began producing cheese from raw sheep and cow milk in 2011. Our sheep milk has always come from our own farm, Sippel Family Farm. We were the first ODA licensed sheep dairy and creamery in the state of Ohio.  Our cow milk has always come from our friends 2 miles down the road at Ruhl Family Farm. Ed and Marvin Ruhl have been producing high quality milk from a mixed herd of cows for decades, and their milk is absolutely perfect for our cheese!

Until July of 2014, we solely focused on making raw milk cheeses. Our Owl Creek and Headwaters Tommes have been leading the way in our lineup of raw milk cheese since the start, and have been joined by a rotating cast of other seasonal varieties over the years. Since then we have added pasteurization capabilities which have allowed us to produce a brand new line of softer and very different cheeses including Whetstone, Morrow and Gilead.

We will always remain committed to producing both raw and pasteurized milk cheeses, and look forward to keeping up with all of your favorites, and trying out exciting new varieties!
