Everything is handpicked and only makes it on the shelf if it is truly exceptional. Find a wide variety of limited production wines, honey, relish, sauces, and more. Many of these goods have a story behind them, so feel free to be curious and ask questions. Customers are always invited to sit, taste, and have a conversation.
Calyroad Creamery is named after two sisters looking to try something new in life. Originally it was started as a farmstead with some goats to make cheese to sell at the farmers markets. It was then decided to bring the cheese making experience to the city, allowing people to come in to make the cheeses, try them, and generally enjoy the cheese experience.
They have become so popular that they are running out of room. Now with the expansion that is happening this week, they have opened up their area to include a tasting room, so people have more space to enjoy events. Expect many and varied events, from their bi-monthly wine and cheese tastings, cheese making classes, tours, pairings, birthday parties, corporate events, and more. Come in during the day for a window view of the cheese making process and at night for tours. One of the cheese makers is a chef from New York, who enjoys making appetizers to show what guests can do with the different cheeses other than eating plain. Look forward to their upcoming seasonal family events, they’d love to have children learn what real cheese tastes like. Their goal is to welcome everyone to come on in and have some fun.
A lot of love goes into cheese making with an awesome team of cheese makers. Working together with the community, it all starts with high quality, local milk and ingredients, which helps to create the Old World, traditionally handcrafted cheeses. These cheeses are made from cow and goat milk. They usually have about ten or more cheeses available at any time, but they change seasonally. They also make goat milk truffles, and with Valentine’s Day in the recent past they have unveiled some new and exciting flavors to try.
With 300 pounds of cheese made daily, I had to ask about the process. The timeline is different for each type of cheese, but once they receive the milk, they will pasteurize it, start making the cheese curds then the cheese. That process usually takes about one day, then into the aging frig it goes. Here is where it can be drastically different, the aging process can take anywhere from 8 days to 4 weeks depending on the type of cheese.
Come in to taste the cheeses, sit down, have a conversation, and enjoy a fun food adventure. Calyroad Creamery is the personal experience that customers won’t find in a supermarket. Experience community and one of a kind incredible cheeses.
