Fresh goat cheese, colorful gelato — handmade every morning — and hanging hand-cured meats greet visitors inside Door County Creamery, a new specialty shop at 10653 N. Bay Shore Drive in Sister Bay.

It’s a labor of love for Jesse Johnson and his wife, Rachael, who have been working for nearly three years to see the operation to fruition.

The inspiration for the cheese-making business came to Jesse when he recalled time spent on a small goat farmstead in the south of France.

“The goats were running around and they’d take them out to pasture, then they’d come back and milk them, and take the milk to local stone creamery where they’d make cheese for the day,” he said. “They’d bring the cheese to the town or regional market.

“It was a closed circle, from the farm to the market. I wanted to recreate that here.”

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
