Getting Started

I love making cheese. There’s really nothing I would rather spend my days doing. Getting legal to make cheese is a whole different thing, though! Lately, market research, building design, septic systems—these are the things that fill my thoughts. I can’t wait to be messing around with the cheese itself again, which should be any day now.



Welcome to Laurel Farm Creamery. You may have followed us in our previous incarnation as Moonmeadow Farm, where we chronicled life on our Southern Appalachian farm, raising animals, children and gardens. Our farm has undergone many changes over the years, including a switch from dairy goats to Jersey cows, a move from one end of the county to the other, and a serious illness. Now we have changed the name of the farm to reflect its physical location, and will be using this blog to share all the latest changes as we go from a small mountain homestead to a micro-creamery producing aged raw milk cheeses for sale to our loyal customers in Asheville and beyond.
