- VISIT US! WE ARE OPEN! -
If you're from around the Ethan, South Dakota, area, you may know where
"the old Miiller Dairy" is/was. The Miiller family ran a dairy here for many many years. We have retrofit the old milk parlour into our cheese making facility, added onto the front for our packaging and wash bay, and we are up and running!
We handcraft small batch, artisan cheese using GRADE A milk from our family's Holstein herd. The milking facility is 3.5 miles down the street. When you stop to visit us, you will enjoy a farm experience! The calves are housed on this property, and we have goats, a pet pig, a horse, lots of farm cats, and a very friendly St. Bernard named Rex. Our retail area is small, but when you walk in, you will find us in the middle of making our fresh and natural product. If you want to try a fresh and squeaky cheddar cheese curd right out of the vat, follow us on facebook, or message us to find out when we are making cheese! The milk we use comes directly from the cows that Gary and Amy Blase milk, and travels only 3.5 miles to us. We are a licensed pasteurizing and manufacturing facility and follow strict state and federal rules to make an amazing fresh and safe product for you and your family to enjoy.
We love to educate about farming, about cheese making, and also about why we are able to bottle our Grade A milk. In the next few months you will be able to enjoy fresh pasteurized whole and whole chocolate milk! As an industry standard Grade A milk does NOT have to be used to make cheese, but we do.
The BEST ingredients go into our cheese, and you are required to use Grade A milk to bottle, so that is what we are about ready to do! We can't wait for you to try it!
