In a world gone mad for innovation and change, it's the small pleasures that keep us sane. And in the constellation of small pleasures that salve the mind and nourish the body, what trumps the sheer sensual deliciousness of a well-crafted cheese?

At Monforte, we're convinced the small things do indeed make a difference, that agriculture is best practiced on a human scale, and that our cheeses, each in its own way, reflect something a little deeper than the technology behind mass manufactured food - a little of the poetry and passion of life itself.

From the Monforte Home Farm

This is an exciting time! At once, we have the potential to realize something that’s been envisioned for a long time, and on the other hand, there is the weight of wanting to, of needing to do good.

There was never any doubt, however, that should the business prove viable and sustainable, there would be a need to make it more complete, and, with your help, we can be home to many, many good things: gardens, animals, a place to show and tell about preserving, fermenting, foraging, milking, preparing and sharing food in a dining room, or family style in the barn, a retreat for our supporters and friends, and secure farmland for the next generation of farmers. Land ownership is a serious thing. It’s very serious—now more than ever.
