Birchrun Hills Farm produces fresh cheese for Main Liners and has an onsite creamery on the farm in northern Chester County.

If you frequent one of the region’s farmers or co-op markets, you may already know about Birchrun Hills Farm. Tucked away in the northern Chester County countryside, Ken and Sue Miller control every step of the cheese-making process in their underground aging facility with sons Randy and Jesse. The award-winning operation also has an on-site creamery.

The Millers grow crops to feed the herd of 80 Holstein cows that produce the high-quality milk for their award-winning cheeses. Varieties include Birchrun Blue (a fudgy, peppery French-style blue made with raw milk and aged at least 60 days), Fat Cat (a semi-soft farmhouse cheese in a natural rind with a grassy, tart, tangy finish) and Little Chardy (a bloomy rind cheese reminiscent of a Camembert).

Based on availability, Birchrun Hills also offers pasture-raised beef, whey-fed pork and rose veal. Enjoy an afternoon on the farm at its Thursday pop-up cheese shop.
