We’re just a family working hard to make good cheese. We milk our own cows, just like our grandparents and great-grandparents did. But we’ve realized something along the way; people love really good cheese.
Have you ever not noticed a Redhead? That’s how our cheese will taste. You’ll be walking down the cheese aisle and say, wow, aren’t those flavors basically extinct? They’re not.
You see, on this very farm there were 4 Redheads born and raised by Jerry and Linda, the parents/grandparents of the operation. They have been searching for Holsteins (and a few Brown Swiss) that make the best cheese for over 30 years. Until recently, that milk was being mixed up with milk from many other Minnesota farms. But now, we want to take control, up the flavor volume, and deliver the best stuff to you.
Do we know what we’re doing? Alise does. She’s one of those Redheads. “Cheese Alise” as we call her has been dreaming of making cheese since she was 16 years old. She’s Jerry and Linda’s daughter and holds both a 4-year degree and certificate in being an awesome cheesemaker. She married a pretty cool guy who’s willing to lend some muscle to the operation named Lucas. Together with their baby, Lucy, the five of them will build a cheese plant.
We’re going to make ridiculously good cheese, but we also have a keen eye for the earth. That’s why we built a anerobic digester in 2007. What’s that? Basically, our cows help us make green energy, powering our farm and our neighbors. Learn more in this handy YouTube video: http://youtu.be/5JPNFvZszW8
If you’ve got other questions, don’t hesitate to let us know. We’re happy to put some flavor in your life.
