Laurel Farm Creamery is a small farm outside Asheville, NC. For years we have raised dairy animals and made cheese, and we have finally decided that, since there’s nothing any of us enjoy more, we should be doing it for a living. This blog will chronicle our adventures as we make the transition from small family homestead to full fledged micro dairy.
We milk Jersey cows right now, but are doing a bit of cross-breeding for hardiness and steady production on grass. Our first Jersey/Red Poll cross will be on the ground in June. We don’t plan to ever milk goats again, though we love to buy goat milk to play with in the cheese kitchen. We have a lovely little flock of milky sheep that contribute milk in the summer.
We will sell cheese in and around Asheville, and from the farm for those adventurous souls who would like to come out and see us!
