On December 13, 2022, at 1:30 am the milking parlor, milkhouse, cheese make room, and creamery office burned in a quick-moving electrical fire. While the walls of the milking parlor could be saved the rest of the building and all the equipment were a complete loss. Fortunately, the aging rooms were detached from the creamery and they were able to be saved, along with all the cheese that was in them. With no way to milk the cows and nowhere to store or process the milk we needed to find a temporary farm for our milking cows. Currently, our milking cows are being cared for at www.nicefarmsmd.com, Nice Farms Creamery in Federalsburg, MD.
On December 26, 2022, we started cleaning up from the fire and on December 28, 2022, we started rebuilding.
The milking parlor is being repaired, receiving a new roof, and the stalls are being welded and repaired. The milking equipment will be replaced.
The new building will house the milkhouse, creamery, utilities, office, storage space, and aging rooms. We are in the process of procuring used equipment to replace what was destroyed.
We are so thankful for all the support we have recieved from our friends, family, neighbors
