CannonBelles Cheese

In 2012, Jackie Ohmann, Kathy Hupf, and Deeann Lufkin started making cheese in their kitchens. We loved how it tasted and realized we should share this with others! From there, the idea for CannonBelles Cheese was born. They have been working with the city and community of Cannon Falls, MN to get their cheese plant up and running. While they work on building their artisan cheese plant, they are making cheese at the University of Minnesota. They make cheese curds in various flavors, queso fresco, cheddar, and gouda. Each is made with locally sourced ingredients, ensuring quality and freshness. They know that their cheeses are something you will be proud to serve to your family and friends.

Herbivorous Butcher

Siblings Aubry and Kale Walch have spent the last several years perfecting deliciously deceiving meat-free meats and cheese-free cheeses and in January 2016, they opened The Herbivorous Butcher, the nation’s first vegan butcher shop. Their vegan meats and cheeses are made from scratch in small batches with ingredients available at your local co-op. Their mission is to improve the health of people, animals, and the environment through food, and to further their mission they founded a farm sanctuary called Herbivorous Acres.
