Redhead Creamery has been making ridiculously good, artisan cheese on our family dairy farm since 2013. But the dream for this sustainable and eco-friendly creamery has been a dream of founder (and natural redhead) Alise Sjostrom’s since she was 16. Today you can tour the creamery, host your event in our private space, or simply hang out to sample some cheese and have a pint in our cheese shop! We can’t wait to see you!
Ever wonder how cheese is made? Or what a day in the life of a dairy cow is like? Come see first-hand on one of our Jer-Lindy / Redhead Creamery farm tours. It’s sure to be a day you’ll remember!
First, you’ll visit the cow side of the farm : The Jer-Lindy dairy calves and heifers, the pregnant mama cows, and the milking parlor where they are milked twice a day. Next up comes the cheese plant, where you’ll get an overview of the entire cheese-making process through our huge picture windows perfectly placed for kids and adults of all ages.
You’ll learn the history of our own dairy cheese story, the farm sustainability and conservation efforts we’ve implemented, have a mooooving conversation with some of our beautiful bovines, and last but not least watch a video on cheesemaking at Redhead Creamery and sample some ridiculously good cheese!
The farm tour lasts about 2 hours and does involve quite a bit of walking. Bring your walking shoes! However, our site is fully wheelchair and stroller accessible, so everyone is welcome.
Tours are $10 per person during our scheduled tour time. Please purchase your tour tickets online by clicking here.
On-Farm Cheese Shop
The Redhead Creamery tasting room and cheese shop is full of locally made foods and products including jams, crackers, chocolates and honey. We also serve our favorite Minnesota-made wine and beer by the glass. Stop by for a treat or put together a unique gift!
