"What makes our cheese so good? Our cows. Our small herd of grass-fed Jersey and Guernsey cows are selected for their incredible cheese-making abilities and winning personalities. At Betty Acres Farm, our Modern Milkmaid’s cheeses are handcrafted uber-fresh or aged in our passively heated and cooled mountainside cave. Combining European traditions with New World innovations we bring you cheese as you have not tasted before. Simple, rustic and always delicious."
"Our sustainable farming practices insure that both the animals and the environment are treated with equal respect and care. Nestled in the Catskill Mountains of New York we celebrate good, healthy local foods. Available at farmer’s markets and specialty food stores."

"Delaware County has a wonderful history of dairy farming. It is important to us that this lifestyle continues here. Our family owns and operates a 45-cow dairy of Holsteins on a farm that has been in the family for eight generations. The handcrafted raw milk gouda cheese we sell is made by us from our own milk. It is aged at least 60 days and comes in plain, cumin seed, dill, caraway and aged cider washed varieties. Come to our roadside farm stand for our fresh bottled raw milk too. Cowbella yogurt, Breadfellows breads, and our farm fresh eggs can be found there too. Byebrook gouda is also available at local stores, the Delhi Farmers' market, and on the menu at Brewery Ommegang."
