Ludwig Farmstead Creamery
The Ludwig family places great emphasis on the humane treatment of their herd, ensuring that each animal is well looked after. Dave Ludwig says he and his family grew up farming in a hands-on working environment. Younger family members fed baby calves, cleaned stalls and fed hay, while the older ones would milk, feed and handle the mature animals. Today, the calves on the farm are left with their mothers for a period to ensure a natural mother-calf relationship is established.
The Ludwig Farmstead Creamery uses only the milk from their herd to produce farmstead style cheese, and the staff takes pride in using “morning-fresh milk” direct
Ludwig Farmstead Creamery’s traditional European style cheeses are sold predominantly in Illinois, Indiana and Missouri at farmers markets, as well as in select retail markets and restaurants. The Creamery features 7 Certified Humane® cheeses, including their Kickapoo and Feather Ridge varieties that recently were named grand champions at the Illinois State Fair.To learn more, visit their website at: ludwigfarmsteadcreamery.com
