Jean started Mackenzie Creamery in 2007 after taking two cheese-making classes and deciding to turn her passion into her life’s work. Previously heading the real estate division of an Ohio-area land conservancy, Jean brings her love for the land into operations at Mackenzie Creamery by ensuring green, eco-friendly cheese production.
Jean’s goat cheese recipes have won several awards and she continues to create new recipes each week that leverage Mackenzie Creamery’s artisan goat cheese.
Rob, Jean’s son, joined Mackenzie Creamery in 2010 to lead day-to-day operations and sales. Rob is responsible for all production on the farm, sourcing ingredients and distribution of Mackenzie Creamery goat cheese to retailers, restaurants and the local community through farmers markets.
Before trading in the corporate life for life on the Mackenzie Creamery farm, Rob worked in software sales.
