Hunter Farms is a family owned and certified organic farm offering predominantly blueberries, as well as vegetables, herbs, natural soap, and flowers. By becoming certified organic, Hunter Farms committed to third-party inspection and regulation to assure customers of the safety and quality of the crops grown. Over the years, Richard Hunter developed systems to control pests and disease, as well as build healthy soils, without using synthetic chemical inputs that harm the earth and its inhabitants.
Grass-fed milk is absolutely the best! And all our special Artisan Cheeses are made from the freshest grass-fed milk right here on the farm. Our cheese-making methods are traditional and our recipes old world. We create cheese by the hard work of our hands. All our cheese is made in small batches, artisan form, with the bare minimum of main ingredients: milk, salt, rennet. We use no additives or preservatives, so our cheeses are not only better tasting, but healthier. Our goal is not to make or sell the most cheese, but to produce the best tasting, highest quality cheese.
