Al and Catherine Renzi- Yellow Springs Farm

Yellow Springs Farm proudly offers both fresh and aged Artisanal Goat Cheeses. The most important part of our cheeses is the exceptionally good milk our goats produce. Each small batch is handmade, and never includes preservatives or anything artificial.

Martha Pisano- Highland Farm

Martha is a pioneer cheese maker and dairy farmer, specializing in artisan sheep’s milk products, fresh to aged. Highland Farm producers fresh Brebis with Herbes de Provence , heavenly feta, classic Spanish-style Manchego, aged-to-perfection Romano and simply divine, peasant style Tomme.

**Martha will be joined by award-winning artisan cheese maker Kristian Holbrook of Doe Run Farm.
