Experience the Difference
of the Farmer’s Touch
Experience the Farm + Creamery
Providing others with a memorable experience is at the heart of Heber Valley Artisan Cheese, a small family dairy farm and creamery nestled in the quaint community of Midway, Utah. For nearly 100 years the Kohler family has been producing premium milk – pure, rich & creamy – to delight their consumers. In 2011, the family built a new creamery and began using their farm’s milk to handcraft and age artisan cheese.
Our Secret: Premium Milk from Happy & Healthy Cows
The secret to Heber Valley Artisan Cheese is premium milk – the perfect base for cheese making – produced by their 150 dairy cows. These happy & healthy “gals” provide the best tasting milk because of their superior care. The cows are grass-fed and roam free in mountain-valley pastures with natural springs. The Kohler family has also excluded corn and other GMO feeds from their cows’ diet as requested by their local raw milk customers.
Experience Fresh & Aged Cheeses
Today, consumers, retailers and chefs can experience the pure goodness of artisan cheese made from premium milk and handcrafted into the freshest curd (squeaky cheese) or aged into a raw milk, sharp or flavored cheddars. In addition, the farmstead creamery also makes Queso Fresco, Monterey Salsa Pepper Jack and Juustoleipa (oo-stay-lee-pa, meaning bread-cheese), a natural moist cheese meant to be grilled, toasted or baked.
Award Winning Cheese: The Difference of the Farmer's Touch
Beyond the farm, Heber Valley Artisan Cheese is ranked among national champions, garnering awards from prestigious organizations like the American Cheese Society, as well as a recognized trend-setter at the Specialty Food Association Winter Fancy Food Show.
However, despite the national attention, you’ll still find the Kohler Family enjoying the quiet farm lifestyle and greeting visitors like old friends. They love to help others experience the difference of the farmer’s touch.
