WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT DOING BUSINESS IN OHIO?

Besides being a great place to raise our family, Ohio's rich natural resources and supportive Department of Agriculture has enabled us to make a unique and superior product that all of Ohio can be proud of.

DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:

When Betty and Fuzzy Cook moved from Boone County, West Virginia onto the 110 acre farm on a dirt road in Cora, Ohio back in 1947, they started a lasting adventure. They raised four children, milked cows and raised the food for both the cows and the family. Their children and then grandchildren, including Nick Nolan, continued to work on the farm with Betty and Fuzzy for decades. Fuzzy passed away in 1994 and the farm began to decline. In 2001 Nick and his wife Celeste moved back to tend the farm and raise their children. After hobby farming for a few years, Nick quit his engineering job and the dairy farm was up and running full-time once more.

We began making cheese as a hobby. It all started with homemade Havarti; after that, we were hooked. We've been making cheese commercially since 2009. Being the third and fourth generation on our family's dairy farm certainly gives us a connection to the land and community. We believe in nourishing ourselves and others with a quality product that we put our whole heart into making. We also believe that quality food should be accessible, and we keep the prices affordable.
