Ashe County Cheese is divided. On side of the street is the general store and on the other the factory. After visiting the store, we learned cheese was being made and made a quick beeline over to the factory.
Located on US 221 North only a short drive away from both Asheville and the NC high country, our farm store offers a variety of farmstead cheeses and local fare. The name “farmstead” denotes that our cheeses are made from milk produced on site. In fact, the milk from our cows travels only a stone’s throw to the farm store, where it is crafted into a variety of hard cheeses and soft cheese spreads.
