Mackenzie Creamery produces award-winning, hand-crafted, artisan goat cheese from the finest ingredients. Located in Hiram, Ohio, we source 100% hormone-free goat milk from local area farms and use it to craft our award-winning fresh and aged goat cheeses.
Our story began in 2007 when Jean Mackenzie, Founder and President of Mackenzie Creamery, took a cheesemaking class while on vacation. One class quickly turned into two, and two classes turned into a passion and a successful business that is positively affecting the local economy. In just five short months after taking her first cheesemaking class, Jean became the second licensed goat cheese producer in Ohio. With that, Mackenzie Creamery was born.
Rob DeMuch, Jean’s son, joined Mackenzie Creamery in 2010 and today is overseeing all operations of the business. In the five years that Rob has been with Mackenzie Creamery, they have experienced notable annual growth. This expansion resulted in an increased demand for locally produced goat milk, which translated to new jobs and career opportunities for local farmers.
Today, Mackenzie Creamery cheese is sold in stores throughout the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic. Our cheeses can be found in grocery stores, specialty shops and many restaurants throughout.

Mackenzie Creamery has been cited in The New York Times, Town & Country Magazine, and Cleveland Magazine as one of the best goat cheeses in the country.
