Holstein grazing at Kenny's
For three years Bloomingfoods has been selling Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese, and this past month I was fortunate to visit their farm and cheese making operation. Kenny and his wife greeted me with warm smiles and enthusiasm about their cheese.
I received a personal tour of their land and facility. Kenny drove me around through the 200 acres of rolling green hills. I got close to and personal with their herd of 100 pure bred Holsteins. Along with a very clean facility were many healthy cows and 5 new calves that Kenny helped birth 3 days prior. (See the several pictures I have attached, below.)
Kenny's Farmhouse Cheese personally ships their product nationwide, yet they have one vat, one cheese making room and under 10 staff members. Raw milk cheese is their specialty and it is made with vegetable-based rennet.
