From Cud to Curd
Bifröst Farms Creamery exists due to the efforts of Meg and Joel Wittenmyer and their small herd of quality Mini-Nubian dairy goats, who are partners in the production of delicious fresh Wisconsin cheeses, Cajeta, and soon, Gelato.
Opened in June of 2016, Bifröst Farms Chevre, Farmstead Salzkäse, and luscious Cajeta (Fall and Winter) are offered on-farm and in the local co-ops of Menomonie and Eau Claire, Wisconsin, as well as The Wedge Co-Op in Minneapolis. It is also used on the menus of The Sheeley House Saloon in Chippewa Falls, Locavore Mobile Kitchen and the Red Stag Supper Club in Minneapolis. Watch for news of our cheeses to be added to more retail stores and area restaurants who want to support the local food movement. Of course, we’re always at the Menomonie Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
While Joel keeps the pastures maintained and things working properly, Meg is the cheese maker, milker, goatherd and midwife for the Bifröst Farms tribe of goats. Between the two, every detailed aspect of the farm, dairy and creamery is controlled to their exacting standards, creating true Cud to Curd goat milk products.
Please note, we are a working farm and normally the dairy and creamery are NOT open to the public. Please call if you wish to make special arrangements to visit the dairy side of things. Or better yet, please sign up for our newsletter. We promise to never spam you with useless, time consuming emails. We only send something out when there is a farm event planned or we want to share some special news and pictures with you (like baby goats!!).
In September 2015 we successfully raised over $6000 toward the creamery building using Barnraiser, which is a rocking crowdfunding platform just for food artisans and farmers! Thanks to over 71 supporters for helping us surpass the goal we’d set and making Meg one of the Women Who Rock of Barnraiser.
