About Ludwig Farmstead Creamery
Ludwig Farmstead Creamery is located in Fithian, Illinois and is a producer of European-style, artisan cheese. It sits on Feather Creek Farm, a 150-acre, fifth-generation family farm originally settled in 1866. The Creamery was the vision of Jacob (“Jake”) V. Ludwig’s passion for cheese making. He recognized the synergy and great potential of using the morning-fresh milk from his father’s blue-ribbon cows to handcraft traditional artisan cheeses right on the farm. Jake studied for a year as a cheese-making intern in Pennsylvania, developing his own specialized Havarti-style cheese seasoned with habanero peppers. He then returned to Fithian where he designed and built his own cheese-making facility. Sadly, Jake lost his life before the cheese production came to fruition. To continue his dream, Jake’s father, Dave Ludwig hired Cheese maker/consultant Fons Smits, who developed several award-winning recipes. Today the creamery continues to produce a line of European-style, raw milk and artisan-aged cheeses. Their handcrafted small-batch cheeses are made with day-fresh milk supplied from their own Holstein cows. Ludwig Farmstead Creamery is very proud to have received the animal welfare certification, Certified Humane, for the raising, feeding, and handling of their cattle. They believe consumers will appreciate knowing where their cheese comes from and how the care that goes into making that cheese aligns directly with the care that goes into raising their cows.
