Award Winning Farmstead Cheese
Josh and Amy Clark are third generation farmers, first generation cheese makers. They craft unique farmstead cheeses from their herd of Jerseys in Skowhegan.
Crooked Face Creamery is the first farm in Maine to be given the Queen of Quality® seal for their 100% Jersey milk dairy products. Jersey cows are a special breed. They produce the highest quality milk with a 20% lower carbon footprint than the average cow. Their Jersey milk, naturally high in butterfat and protein, combined with a rotational grazing program, give Crooked Face Creamery cheese its authentic rich flavor. In 2013, their farmstead whole milk ricotta was awarded 3rd place in the nation at the American Cheese Society Conference held in Madison, WI.
As part of his commitment to environmentally-friendly farming, Josh practices rotational grazing, a method where cows are turned out to graze on a fresh field of grass after every milking. This means happier cows and better tasting milk. Using this creamy fresh milk, Amy handcrafts her farmstead cheeses with love.
