Sampling a variety of top-quality cheeses couldn’t be much easier than this: every other week, Collective Creamery will have a selection of grass-fed artisan cheeses ready for pick-up and enjoyment.
The innovative collaborative of two area cheesemakers is a first in the Philly region, and one of them is Sue Miller of Chester Springs’ Birchrun Hills Farm.
“We’re selling cheeses handmade with care from the healthiest, highest-quality milk,” said the other cheesemaker, Stefanie Angstadt of Valley Milkhouse Creamery in Oley. “Sue and I been wanting to work together for some time, and the cheese share was a really appealing way to do that.”
Subscriptions offer two to three cheeses weighing up to a pound and a half, plus optional add-ons like cultured or flavored butters, jams, vegetables and breads.
“We know why Stef and Sue’s current customers seek out their products. They have amazing flavor and a strong sense of place, and they’re made with nourishing, best-quality milk from pasture-raised animals,” Operations Manager Alex Jones said.
“Collective Creamery allows us to bring these cheeses to parts of the region where you can’t easily find these products while growing revenue for these small, farm-based businesses.”
Collective Creamery’s first subscription season is slated to start in mid-October and run through mid-December, with pick-ups available at Birchrun Hills Farm, The Bottle Room in Downingtown, the Bryn Mawr Farmers Market and other locations outside Chester County.
