Heber Valley Artisan Cheese

This family-owned farm and creamery is tucked in the quaint community of Midway, Utah. The Kohler family has been in the industry for 100 years, giving Utahns the purest, richest, and most creamy milk around since opening.

Once established as a leading farm in the valley, the family also build a creamery in 2011 to offer customers exceptional dairy products from milk to handcrafted artisan cheeses.

The premium milk used to make Heber Valley Artisan Cheese is what makes their flavors so special — produced by 150 cows raised on the farm. Their cows are very well cared for, each grass-fed and able to roam free around the mountain valley pastures of Midway.

The cheese selection here is all aged to perfection with exquisite flavors like Cascade Raw, Queso Fresco Verde, and Wasatch Back Jack. Their hard work and produce have gained them award-winning recognitions.

To browse their entire selection, go to HeberValleyArtisanCheese.com or visit the creamery in-person at 920 River Road in Midway, Utah.
