Mt. Sterling Co-op Creamery turns 100
Our friends at Mt. Sterling Creamery recently celebrated their 100 year anniversary. Their line, best known for their goat cheeses and butters, has been steadily gaining praise in the cheese world for an official century. While this is great news for them, it's even better for us—in celebration, the creamery is expanding their artisan cheese line. Congrats!
A historic cheese factory set in the scenic hills of Crawford County will celebrate its 100-year anniversary this year by getting a facelift and expanded artisan cheese line.
Mt. Sterling Co-op Creamery -- today home to an award-winning line of goat's milk cheeses and goat whey cream butter -- was originally built in 1912 by a group of local dairy cow farmers who wanted to make more money from their excess cream. They succeeded, using a new innovation - the centrifugal cream separator -- hauling milk to the factory in horse-drawn wagons, churning the cream into butter, and then returning the skim milk back to the farms, using it for livestock feed.
