Boxcarr Handmade Cheese
We laid the foundation for our cheese-making dreams by farming heirloom produce, raising a beautiful herd of dairy goats, several litters of heritage pigs, and flocks of pasture-raised chickens and turkeys. We sold our growings and makings at local farmers markets, off of our gourmet food truck, through our catering business, and our CSA.
After years of immersing ourselves in the farming and food community and culture, we designed and built our creamery on the top of the ridge overlooking our farmstead's pond. We founded Boxcarr Handmade Cheese, and produced our first batch of cheese in April 2015.
We take inspiration from small Italian farmstead creameries. Our milk is sourced from two small family-owned dairies who raise their cows with the greatest of care and highest standards. Beginning in the spring of 2019, milk from our own herd of dairy goats will be part of the mix. In addition to supporting these small dairy businesses, we employ a handful of locals, teach through internships, and employ youth through Orange County Second Family Foundation.
We distribute our artisan cheeses nationally, while also selling locally to restaurants, shops, and directly to shoppers at the Durham Farmers Market.
Our dedication to family, hard work, and great food is the soul of Boxcarr Handmade Cheese. We hope you taste and enjoy it in every bite.
