About Keystone Farms Cheese
Keystone Farm’s is located in the heart of the cheese making capital of the United States New Glarus, Wisconsin.
For twelve years, Pete and his family traveled from Pennsylvania to Wisconsin for their yearly vacation. Time after time they found themselves bringing back more and more cheese for family and friends to enjoy and who just raved about the exceptional flavor of that fresh Wisconsin cheese.
In 2004, Pete followed his heart as well as his love for cheese and purchased a dairy farm in Green County Wisconsin. The dairy farm was originally homesteaded in 1873 by Swiss settlers and it is a well-known and respected Grade A Dairy Farm that has milked an exceptional herd of Brown Swiss Cows during the last century. Built in 1850, the farm totals a whopping 395 acres and has every bit of character and charm that one could imagine! The property has a tranquil stream running through it that allows for the cows to drink from. It includes the original farmhouse, carriage house, the barn for the milking jersey cows, 2 silos, chicken coup, calf quarters, pig pen, dog kennel, shed, as well as 2 large buildings for storing all farm machinery.
Keystone Farms is a very bustling place! With over 40 jersey cows and 10 calves.
All of our livestock are born naturally and peacefully on the farm. What’s so important to us is the fact that all of our calves are named, not numbered and are raised on our property. They enjoy a balanced diet and are given plenty of personal attention by the youngest daughter, Lauren.
Building a Business
In 2014 Keystone Farms Cheese was born! Pete’s daughter Nikole decided to bring the heavenly, delectable cheeses straight from Wisconsin back to her home town of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania where we distribute the fine cheeses of Wisconsin to the Northeast.
Since then we have partnered with World Class Cheesemakers in Southern and Northeastern Wisconsin to handcraft our cheeses! Every one of the farms producing milk for the factories are in the top tier in quality and cleanliness. When the fresh, premium milk arrives at their small, artisan creameries, that’s when the real magic happens. Our cheesemakers each have a unique background as well as family history, but their passion for quality is what makes them part of our Family.
Keystone Farms Cheese is committed to providing our customers with only the finest quality artisanal cheeses available. All products are made from 100% Wisconsin cow's milk, and contain no preservatives, no artificial flavors or colors, and no added hormones!
You'll find our cheeses to be some of the most delicious cheeses that you have ever tasted! Made with ingredients that we trust, are proud of and eat ourselves! Our Master Cheesemakers continue to make these hand-crafted cheeses in the Swiss-German tradition of excellence; made in small batches, using only the finest ingredients available. Lots of love from our farm to your table!
