About Us / Osage Lane Creamery, Ltd. History:
Having grown up on farms, both Tom and Emma wanted to get back to the farm when they married 33 years ago. On a nine acre farm north of Newark, Ohio, we began raising children and vegetables. A customer had been diagnosed with cancer and was told to get off as many processed foods as possible. We purchased a goat and began supplying her with raw milk. One goat became three. Three became seven.
We bought a much larger herd and began supplying milk through a co-op. We then moved the dairy to Tom's boyhood home.
After loosing a lucrative milk market, we built the cheese facility and began adding value to our milk in 2008. We produce raw milk cheeses since raw milk is how we successfully raised our children. We sell to a number of small groceries (Ross Mkt and Going Green, in Granville, Bexley Natural and Weilands, in Cols., The Harvest,in Mt. Vernon, Health in Hand in Lancaster, and farmers markets: Lynd Fruit Farm, Summit Ridge, Granville Winter Farmer's Market. Our motto is Clean, Simple, Natural.
We hold four different licenses to make the cheese, milk the goats, test the milk, sell at Farmer's Markets and even to move the milk to the cheese plant. Ohio Department of Ag inspects each month and the FDA has made inspections too.
We are proud of the building of our small business and invite on-farm tours on Saturdays in late March to see new babies. ($5/person)
