Our Story

Locally owned and operated since 1989, Haystack Mountain is nationally recognized as a producer of premium, handcrafted raw and pasteurized cheeses, made in a variety of styles. Haystack Mountain cheeses are known for their outstanding, fresh, clean flavor and texture—a direct result of high-quality milk produced by our partner dairy at the Skyline Correctional Facility and the skill of cheesemaker, Jackie Chang.
