We are a farmstead cheesemaker crafting caramel, ice cream and cheese from our mixed herd of pasture based cows. The farm was started in 1947 by the Harmon family. We continue dairying on the land and added cheesemaking and underground aging caves to the farm in 2018. We focus on producing exceptional handcrafted cow milk cheeses including fresh, blue, washed rind and hard pressed cheeses. We make both raw milk and pasteurized varieties as well as caramelized cows milk sauce (dulce de leche) called Carmoolita and ice cream. We started as an artisan producer in Fairivew and you can still visit us there just outside of Asheville every Thursday through Sunday 11am to 5pm. We sample and sell all of our cheese, lots of local food products, beer, wine and cheese plates too. Our dairy farm is located in Columbus, NC about an hour south of Asheville. Look for regular hours at the farm coming in mid to late 2018. Until then we will be busy getting moved into the new creamery and aging caves on the farm and taking over operations of the dairy.

Come visit us at our original location in Fairview. We sample and sell all our cheese, fresh to aged as well as the best of local food like pickles, jam, bread, mustard, aged meat and more. We make fresh to aged cheeses from Fromage Blanc to cheddar and alpine styles and sometimes blue. We also have fresh cheddar curds available while they last. Enjoy Gelato made from our milk and our house made caramel sauce too. Stay a while and enjoy a cheese plate with a wine by the glass and bottle or beer while you are here. Upon your arrival, you'll be greeted by our two goat ambassadors (we are a cow cheese maker though!) and Moses our Great Pyrenees. It's a nice way to spend a relaxing couple of hours and explore the Fairview farming community while you are at. Very near by is a vegetable stand, other cheesemakers, a farm that specializes in pasture raised beef and pork and two small breweries.
Our store is open from January 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018.
A cute retail shop and sitting area's outside and in the loft of the barn. Sample and buy housemade products including all our cheeses and caramel sauce. We also sell and sample the best of locally made foods, get a cheese education from our experienced staff, and enjoy a cheeseplate with wine or beer while you are here. A great relaxing way to spend a little time. Check out our Trip Advisor reviews and listing for photos and visitor feedback.
