The creamery at Many Fold Farm will be shutting its doors as of January 1, 2017 for the foreseeable future. We aren't selling the business, nor the brand, nor the stock. We will continue farming operations and practicing good land stewardship. We are taking a moment to decide how we can better serve the food and farming community. We have shown that there is substantial interest in and demand for beautiful cheese made by hand on farms in the United States. We have stood and continue to stand alongside others to show that the southeast can add cheesemaking to its list of culinary traditions.
The work of farmstead cheese in the United States is challenging above and beyond many other ways of working. Over the past seven years we have faced and met many of these challenges with extraordinary success. However, as the interest and enthusiasm for local foods increases the challenges do not decrease. Problems of scale and consumer access and education especially plague the movement towards better food. We want the time and space to work more directly on these concerns than the daily challenges of our business allows. It is our hope that in time, we might provide insight and resources towards developing new agrarian economies going forward.
Thanks for being a part of this with us.
