Local Profile: Rochdale Farms


Meet one of the goats responsible for Rochdale Farms’ 18 month aged goat cheddar.

A favorite producer here at Mississippi Market, Rochdale Farms Cheese is locally and cooperatively owned.  Rochdale Farms is the creation of Mary Bess Michaletz and Bentley Lein. It was created with the intention to foster the growth of small local dairy producers and to create delicious and creative cheeses.  Rochdale sells all of their cheeses exclusively to natural food cooperatives.

Most of the milk Rochdale uses comes from a network of over 325 small Amish family farms spread across Wisconsin and Minnesota. These family run farms take an extraordinary amount of care into the treatment of their animals and their land. Each farm has a small single heard of cows or goats that is milked by hand every day. The extremely fresh milk is brought to K&K creamery, in traditional milk cans, where it is produced and is overseen by Master cheese maker Tom Torkelson.

Rochdale makes affordable everyday favorites such as organic Mild & Sharp Cheddar, Provolone, and String Cheese. In addition, they have also created a tremendous line of artisan cheese. Unique and hand-made, this line includes Cellar Aged Gouda, Cave-Aged Blue, Reserve Alpine Emmentaller, and Extra Aged Goat Cheddar. Mississippi Market is excited to offer this line of cooperatively made cheese.
