Meet: Clover Creek Cheese Cellar
Who: Clover Creek farm and cheese house are managed by David, Terry, Anthony, Yolanda, Jesse, Austin, and Vannika Rice. They are one of the few small family farms remaining in Western PA and are the only seasonal, grass based, farmstead, artisan cheese dairy in Blair County. They have been milking cows on their farm along Clover Creek for 22 years and began selling cheese made from their cows’ milk in 2005. In 2007, they began making and aging cheeses in their natural rinds in their cellars on the farm.
What: Clover Creek Cheese Cellar makes a large variety of delicious cheeses to sell at market. They have Galen’s Good Old cheese made from a secret recipe (like Gouda) given to them by the man that helped them build their cheese plant and a smoked version of the same recipe. They also offer Royer Mountain cheese that has a sharp yet smooth texture with a bit of a Romano flavor. In addition to several other specialty cheeses created on the farm, Clover Creek also offers a Cheddar cheese comparable to those imported from England and a wonderful Bruschetta. Clover Creek also sells delicious raw milk and pasture-and-whey-fed beef as well.
