A family tradition since 1853
Mapledale Farm is a family farm tucked away in the Taconic Mountains of Berlin, New York. Our dairy farm consists of fields in the Little Hoosick River Valley, upland meadows, hillside pastures, and 3 Sugar Maple Bushes. Our herd of black and white Holsteins produce 100% of the high quality milk used to make our farmhouse cheese.
We are passionate about keeping our family farm sustainable.
In 1769, our Great, great, great, great, great Grandfather purchased his farm in what would eventually become the Town of Berlin.
Our farmland is a connection to our heritage, and also serves as our livelihood for the future. When you receive a legacy from previous generations, you want to care for that legacy to be able to pass it along to future generations. This sense of tradition and sustainability has led us to return to our roots and use our herd's milk to produce local, authentic cheese.
Our cheese is full of flavor thanks to the Grade A milk, our locally grown crops, and a cheesemaking style that is focused on enhancing taste and quality. From all of the Greene Family, thank you for visiting Mapledale Farm.
Mapledale Farmhouse Cheese is fully aged and ready for tasting. We now have cheese made from our own farm's milk--just like we did 130 years ago. We hope that you enjoy the unique taste and flavor of our authentic, locally produced cheese. The first varieties available are: "Classic Farmhouse Colby" and "Farmhouse Garlic Colby." We now have our own locally produced cheddar cheese. Colby Cheese was originally known as Colby Swiss Cheddar--which is probably the best way to describe the texture and basic flavor of the cheese. However, to experience the local flavor of the cheese--you'll just have to try it for yourself.
