Cross Farm’s Cloverdale Creamery began when Patrick decided
he wanted to get back to his roots and incorporate dairy cattle
into the farming operation. Soon a small herd of registered Jersey

and Leeta knew they did not want to have a commercial fluid dairy
operation, so they began researching what they could do in the value-added
dairy market that would only required a small herd. They soon discovered
the art and joy of raw milk cheeses.
Cloverdale Creamery produces aged, raw milk cheeses at the creamery
located on the farm using the milk from the farm’s Jersey
and Holstein herd. The cheese is aged in the farm’s cheese
cave and packaged on the farm and then shipped direct to the restaurant,
retail outlet or consumer
from any of the Cloverdale Creamery’s raw milk cheese selection
and realize that nothing comes close to local cheese.
