Redhead Creamery is childhood dream being built step by step

I met the Sjostroms recently at the Minnesota Cheese Festival- they’re one of our up-and-coming artisan makers- looking forward to featuring them in my shop!

Please follow the link below to read their story then follow their Kickstarter link!  (They’ve passed their first goal and are near $40K!!)

Using an online fundraising site called kick starter.com — which gets the word out about independently-created projects — the Sjostroms are raising the down payment on a loan for their new cheese-making building.

They led the effort by letting readers know that Redhead Creamery needs a new on-farm plant to bring more great cheese to Minnesota, using the leftover whey to “power the neighborhood.”

The loan will allow the couple to gain equity in the farm business and eventually take ownership.

“Our goal is $35,000,” Alise said. “We are hoping to break ground in early October and be making cheese by about April.”

The building will be built into a hill near a pond, with plenty of natural light.

“All of the cheese companies I worked in were completely closed, and you could not see the light of day,” said Alise. “We’re going to have lots of windows.”

The cheddar-aging caves will be “tucked into the hill, a good way of saving energy,” she said.

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.
