Our name was chosen in honor of our forefathers of 12-20 generations ago who were farmers and artisan cheesemakers in the Bernese Oberland region of the Swiss Alps. Cheese lovers today still appreciate and enjoy the flavorful, good quality cheeses produced by the skilled artisan cheesemakers of the Alps. Their knowledge in agriculture and primitive farmstead cheese making practices gives them a cutting edge. This heritage is handed down from generation to generation for hundreds of years. Thus in late 2012 when we launched our creamery we chose to pay tribute to these humble farmers and progressive cheesmakers with our name. Hence, the name is born "Alpine Heritage Creamery". Here at Alpine Heritage Creamery we make hand-crafted artisanal cheese using only raw organic milk from 100% grass fed cows. The milk is regularly tested for bacteria to insure that it is of the utmost quality. The rest of the ingredients are simple - cultures, traditional rennet and salt. We are a second generation family run dairy farm with an onsite creamery. We produce and mature our own unique flavor and style of cheeses. This arrangement allows us to have full control of everything the cows eat, the milking process and then the making, maturing and selling of the cheese. Our cows diet consists only of organic grass, grass hay, and grass haylage. Also, a small supplement of minerals to balance their diet. They never eat grain, corn silage, or any soy products. We conscientiously remain GMO free. We refrain from the use of any form of antibiotics. We care about our cows and most likely as you read this they are happily grazing on their acres of lush green pastures at home on the farm! The herd is exclusively A2/A2 cows. The cows are part of the family here on the farm and we care for them as such. With each of them receiving a personal name name at birth, they quickly learn that life is enjoyable and there is so much to do in the lifetime of a cow. Ingredients in the cheeses are simple: Milk, cheese cultures, traditional rennet, and pure salt. We use organic seasonings for the flavored cheeses.
Dimitri Olive Oil is grown and produced in Greece on a small farm own and run by the Dimitri Giannakos Family. They have been farming this land for over 100 years where their grandfather planted the olive trees as a young man. The family picks, presses, bottles, and imports the olive oil. The result is pure first cold Pressed Unfiltered extra virgin. The family manages and participates in everything from the tree to the bottle. The trees are not sprayed. They lose a small percentage of production each year due to the "olive bug" but they find that a more attractive alternative than spraying. Organic chicken manure and neighbors' sheep grazing on the farm is what they use for fertilizer. The olives for the tapenades and olive mixes and the vinegars come from neighboring farms who have the same farming practices. The result: exquisite oils, olive mixes and vinegars
