And of course, there will be cheese curds available! Their famous pan-fried cheese curds and curd kabobs will be available in addition to other fabulous food offerings.
Redhead Creamery was a dream from the age of 16 for Alise Sjorstrom. While pursuing higher education, she perfected her cheese-making skills. Alise developed her own college curriculum at the University of Minnesota revolving around cheese and dairy food quality and trained at the Vermont Institute for Artisan Cheese. In 2013 Red Head Creamery had made its first batch of cheese, and by the end of 2014 they had built and opened up our own cheese-making facility at Jer-Lindy Farms.
