LaClare Family Creamery Adds Chèvre for Retail and Foodservice


MALONE, WI
Thursday, May 10th, 2018

A recent acquisition has brought a new product line to LaClare Family Creamery’s repertoire, adding fresh groat cheese to its already successful hard and aged goat cheese products.

“This acquisition gives us the opportunity to branch out into the Chèvre category,” said Head Cheesemaker Katie Fuhrman of the December 2017 purchase of Missouri-based Heartland Creamery. “It has allowed us to round out our goat cheese offerings.”

LaClare Chèvre

Heartland Creamery is a 700-goat farm, according to a press release, and is a multi-generational enterprise operated by two generations of the Hedrich family. Known for producing award-winning goat cheese, yogurt, and fluid milk, the acquired farm will allow LaClare to produce the following four flavored chèvres in both retail and foodservice sizes:

  • Original
  • Honey
  • Cranberry Cinnamon
  • Garlic and Herb

LaClare, which traces its roots back to 1978, has grown to operate a processing plant, retail shop, and restaurant, all at its current location in Malone, Wisconsin. For more on companies leading the charge in the dairy, deli, and bakery business, Deli Market News will keep broadcasting the latest.
