Meet Barbara and Alan, the Couple Who Followed Their Passion for Great Cheese to Create 5 Spoke Creamery

It all began when Alan, a food scientist by training specializing in dairy cultures, spent a summer working for Unilever in Holland. It was there that he fell in love with raw milk cheese, a passion he later shared with Barbara.

After successful careers in Specialty Foods (Alan) and Advertising (Barbara), they went all in and bought a dilapidated dairy farm in Goshen, NY and brought it back to life. The barn and milk house were renovated; a below ground European-style aging room was built along with a cheese making room above. It’s here that the magic happens!
