“Healing the planet through agriculture”

“Made in the classic style using a copper vat and the raw milk of free-roaming cows, it's no wonder Hawthorne Valley's biodynamic Alpine-style cheese tastes so authentic--nutty and dense, with an abundance of sweet-saline flavors.”
- Elaine Khosrova, founding editor of culture, the word on cheese.

About Us

The Hawthorne Valley Farm Creamery is part of the larger non-profit organization Hawthorne Valley Association, which is dedicated to education, agriculture and the arts and has a wide range of programming. The Creamery, based on our farm in Ghent, New York, produces a range of certified organic and Biodynamic products including cultured milk products and a selection of artisan and farmstead cheeses. Our 60-head herd of dairy cows forms the nucleus of Hawthorne Valley Farm which was one of the first dairies in the 236 to be certified organic and licensed to sell raw milk. Our Creamery came into full operation over thirty years ago and began offering yogurt, cheeses and raw milk.
