Situated on the banks of both the Little Applegate River and Yale Creek, ByGeorge Farm and Creamery began as a sustainable 86-acre organic farm in 2008, and now stands as one of Southern Oregon’s most popular, and productive, farmstead creameries.
With an intentional focus on land stewardship, owner/operators Jonny Steiger and Tyson Fehrman now have a growing herd of grass-fed Jersey cows and land that is organic and salmon-safe certified. The cows get local no-spray, no-GMO alfalfa and hay from the farm as supplement. Sustainability practices include feeding the milk whey to their chickens, thereby reducing the waste that has to be removed from the farm and creating a lower carbon footprint with their egg production.
Their handcrafted fresh and aged cheeses can be found in retail locations along the West coast and at Southern Oregon farmers markets. They also produce raw milk, organic produce, flowers and herbs, free range pork and poultry, and grass fed beef.
