"Made by us from our own cows' milk" - Our family has a rBGH-free 50 cow dairy. We only use our fresh, Grade A milk in our all-natural cheese. We're often asked the origin of our company name. Gingerbread speaks of that 'Homemade' smell, like Grandma's kitchen... Gingerbread is the fanciful curly cues on the classic old farmhouses, again giving the hardworking farmer a bit of Victorian beauty... Gingerbread is the color of Jersey Cows, and it just sounds nice with Jersey. Jersey Cows are dainty cows with beautiful eyelashes - they aren't your factory kind of cows! They have enough intelligence to have personality (and to get into trouble!) They just happen to give the richest milk for cheese--a nice added benefit. Our family farm has been operating since 1918. My grandparents and five other families, all close relatives, homesteaded six 80-acre farms next to each other. They built the road to it together, they cleared the forest to farmland together, and they helped each other build their barns. Then my Grandma's youngest brother put a cheese factory on the corner and they shipped their cheese to Chicago. In 2005, we took delivery on a brand new state-of-the-art little factory (see www.cheeseonwheels.com). We have a catwalk and windows where customers can watch us make over 80 kinds of cheese! Our cheeses have won 25 awards in national and international cheese competitions since 2008.
