Evalon cheese

Evalon cheese is made by LaClare Family Creamery in Malone, Wisconsin.

Larry and Clara Hedrich, the “La & Clare” part of LaClare Family Creamery, had a dream to raise their now five grown children on a farm. They purchased a  farm in 1978, began their dairy goat operation and raised their five children.  In fact, in 1996, they decided to milk their goats by machine and turned their interest in goat milk into a commercial operation.  The family milked over 100 goats for about nine years before Larry and another group of farmers started a goat milk cooperative.  Now they supply LaClare Farms and several other cheesemakers with high-quality goat milk.

Later, the Hedrichs then decided to use this great milk to create a product.  They unveiled their Evalon cheese in 2008. In 2009, their daughter,  Katie Fuhrmann, began making cheese full time for LaClare Farms.  Furthermore, in 2012 LaClare Farms came back to its roots, Chandoka Farm, the property on which LaClare Farms operates today.  The Hedrichs broke ground that year for their state of the art dairy goat operation.  In 2014, LaClare Farms began making its cheese on-site.

In other words, Evalon cheese is a labor of love.  Katie Fuhrmann uses fresh, high-quality milk from healthy goats fed on grain and excellent forage.  Therefore, that milk is used to produce Evalon, a delicious raw milk, semi-soft wheel of cheese. As it matures, it becomes an excellent table cheese. Evalon is the first of several artisan cheeses produced by the Hedrichs.

Pairing suggestions:  Peach Chamomile Preserves, Cranberry Hazelnut Crisps, fruity white or dessert wines, a fresh fruit juice, or champagne.

    My favorite cheese on the planet. And really, it is the only non-blue cheese made in the USA that I have found worth eating. I LOVE IT !! Hard to find in our area….Alabama.
