Who We Are
The real story is based on the fact that small farming, particularly dairy farming is not very profitable. Joan operated a small dairy selling milk to a large processor where it was bottled along with the milk from many other dairies. With the price of milk remaining constant and costs of supplies, energy and feed rising, Joan had to find a way to make small scale farming profitable. The answer was to create a value added product and market the milk herself.

In 1998, owner Joan Lamothe, started Rustling Wind Creamery with the help of her good friend Florence Brocklehurst, a British native and master cheesemaker. Joan had just sold her dairy farm and the small herd of Jersey cattle. Florence had come to the U.S. with her husband Frank to raise sheep and goats and make cheese. Together the two decided that starting the business would be their new venture, and a good venture it has been with some great cheeses and more! 

Shortly after the business opened, Florence had to return to England to live. Joan continues to run the business, milking goats and cows and making cheeses. Unfortunatly, Florence is only able to come to the U.S. occassionally but her recipes and teachings remain and her presence is throughout the entire business.

Along with cheeses the business has expanded into Jams and Jellies, Chutneys, Pickles and Relishes, Maple Products, Goat Milk Soap, and Hand Knits from our own sheeps wool..
