About Sunset Acres

Sunset Acres is an all natural, grass-based 120 acres farm, and home to 30 dairy cows, a colorful hodgepodge of breeds consisting of Brown Swiss, Dutch Belted, and Normandy, plus a Deum Bill. We started a cow share program in 2002. Catering to consumer's requests we discontinued all grain feeding which produces a nutient dense milk. Six years later we altogeher quit shipping that special milk to a commercial processor and used the excess milk to make cheese.

Raw milk cheese is simply cheese made with unpasteurized milk and therefore still has all of its heat sensitive nutrients, enzymes, etc. intact. We currently make 10 different varieites, randing from mild to sharp and sicy. We're excited about adding more products before the end of 2014, including a few items which (because of regulation) require the milk to be minimally pasteurized, but it will not be ultra-pasteurized or homogenized.

Our farm is family operated, making cheese twice a week during the grazing season. We ship cheese via FedEx, sell it in our on-farm-store, and every Saturday morning we make the 75 milke trek to Bloomington Community Farmers' Market where we enjoy meeting and talking to you all.
