Ballard Cheese

The only thing better than cheese is MORE cheese!

When it comes to artisanal cheese crafters, Ballard Family Cheese is a name that Idahoans know and love. Their commitment to quality and their passion for the craft has earned them a loyal following and numerous awards. And it’s easy to see why.

From their humble beginnings and through many curveballs, the Ballard Family has been able to create cheeses that are truly unique in flavor and texture. Their award-winning Haloumi cheese, in particular, is a standout product that has earned them accolades from foodies and cheese lovers alike. This grilling cheese not only tastes delicious, but it also makes a stunning addition to any charcuterie board or meal.

But the Haloumi cheese is just the tip of the iceberg. Ballard Family Cheese offers a wide range of artisanal cheeses that are perfect for any occasion. From their cheese curds to their savory feta, gouda, and cheddar, there’s something for everyone.

What’s even more impressive is that the Ballard family crafts their cheese in small batches, ensuring that each product is made with the same care and attention to detail as the first. They have a passion for their craft that is evident in every bite, and their cheese has become a staple in many homes, and can be found at retailers, and restaurants throughout Idaho.
