Blakesville Dairy Farm and Blakesville Creamery humanely raise healthy goats using sustainable farming practices and to produce the highest quality of handmade artisan cheeses. The farm name was updated in 2019 from Lake Breeze (now one of our cheese names) to Blakesville Dairy Farm to honor the original village that was located on the land prior to our time.
Their cheesemaking facility began production in the summer of 2020. They are a farmstead creamery, meaning that the cheeses are made by hand on the same farm where the animals are raised and their milk is collected. Because of this, care and attention to the purity, quality, and flavor of the milk are critical to our production process. Blakesville cheeses are ripened naturally, focusing on developing characteristic flavor and texture and eschewing shortcuts or techniques that would affect quality. Respect for the traditions and history of cheesemaking are honored within our 10,000 sq ft state-of-the-art creamery, resulting in a modern-day facility that seamlessly blends a timeless art form with modern science.
