Company description

Owned by the Hamill family for more than a century, Cherry Grove Farm was started in 2002 as a direct outgrowth of the Hamills’ passion for the land, their community, and the idea of responsible, sustainable food production. 

Cherry Grove uses the farmstead cheesemaking model, meaning that we do everything on site, from raising and milking the cows to making and aging our cheese. By keeping the process in-house, we  ensure that we use only the best quality milk from humanely treated cattle who graze through the farm’s 200 plus acres of verdant pasture.

 

 We are committed to practicing regenerative agriculture, regularly rotating where our animals are grazing so that both they and the land remain as healthy as possible. The result is cheese, meat, and eggs that are sustainably produced and delicious — food you can feel good about eating.

We care deeply for the well-being of our land, our animals, and the community we serve.
