Pasture to Plate
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 2016, Bifröst Farms Chevre, Farmstead Salzkäse, and seasonal yogurt cheese (Spring and Summer) or luscious Cajeta (Fall and Winter) are offered on-farm and in the local co-ops of Menomonie and Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Watch for news of our cheeses to be added to more retail stores and local area restaurants who want to support the local food movement.
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 pasture to plate goat milk products.
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.
