“Our kids are cheese makers, our families are involved, we’re just a small local creamery and we love to support local,” he said.
Other Beehive signature cheeses include SeaHive, which is hand rubbed with honey and salt, TeaHive, with a tea rubbed rind, and Big John’s Cajun, a spicy cheese using a Cajun rub created by a local chef.
The company was founded in 2005, when Ford and Welsh left their careers in software and real estate to open the company which sits at the mouth of Weber Canyon. When they decided to go into business, their first call was to the local agricultural college. The dairy scientists at Utah State University taught the pair the rudiments of cheddar cheese making, which has some history in the region. When the locals began showing up on the creamery’s doorstep to buy cheese direct, the partners opened a little retail shop too. They stock their own cheeses, a handful of others, and coffee beans from Tim’s brother, a professional roaster in Colorado.
