About Branched Oak Farm LLC:

At Branched Oak Farm we care about the food we produce. After Doug married Krista and they moved to his farm in northwestern Lancaster County. We started raising hens for our own egg use. When we butchered our first steer, a neighbor asked to buy a quarter of our grass-fed beef. Listening to the requests of our family, friends and neighbors, led us to grow grass-finished beef, pastured poultry and eggs. Soon these friends and customers started asking for fresh milk, thus the dairy was started. Since 2006 we have been producing cheese on the farm from our own herd of certified organic Jersey cows. We are proud of the cheeses we make - our quark won a second place in its class at the American Cheese Society's competition in 2008 and our camembert won a silver medal at the 2009 American Jersey Society's cheese competition.

General Practices:

Certified organic by OneCert, grass-based, sustainable. Cheese is made in small batches by hand.

Highlights:

This month's highlight is Krista's Little Camembert. A wonderful cheese for impressing your dinner guests, serving pie-shaped wedges of these bloomy-rinded rounds on hearty sourdough or baguette is like indulging in a slice of happiness.

Product Types:

Artisan, farmstead cheeses, made from certified organic Jersey cow milk. Cheese varieties: quark, gouda, mozzarella, jarlsburger.
