You'll see our dairy calves and heifers, milking parlor, and cheese plant to get an overview of the entire cheese-making process through our picture windows, which are fun for all ages.

Our hour-long walk, stop, and taste tours offer a glimpse into our sustainability and conservation efforts. Our Cheese Shop is also open for lunch and shopping after your tour so you can savor our cheeses or give the ridiculously good stuff to your friends and family.

How the Cheese at Redhead Creamery Is Made

We want our cheese to taste as fresh as possible and foster our craft into an incredible product. Our farm-fresh milk comes directly from the milking parlor to the cheese plant via an underground tunnel and stainless steel pipeline. Collecting warm, fresh milk straight from our farm's cows helps save energy on cooling and goes directly to pasteurization so we can get to work on our delicious-tasting cheese.

Next, we add cultures to our cheese vats, or enzymes, that help contribute to the unique characteristics of each cheese. We also use liquid rennet that's added directly to the milk before hand-salting our cheeses to help enhance their quality and safety.
