In 1999, Rebeccah Salmeri (one of Brazos Valley Cheese's founders) wanted to learn how to make cheese. She had access to plenty of fresh milk from our farm's dairy herd, so armed with her keen interest and a book on cheesemaking, she delved right in. Once she found she could make tasty cheese for her family, she started teaching her friends how to make cheese and even began to teach classes on cheesemaking. She was soon joined by her cousin, Marc, then later joined by other friends and family. With their help, they began to build and expand Brazos Valley Cheese. Rebeccah has since moved to Deary, Idaho where she operates their sister company, Brush Creek Creamery.
Brazos Valley Cheese serves a number of restaurants and hotels which feature their cheeses in gourmet meals and on cheese boards, but their main focus is in providing retail customers with artisan cheeses, local foods and gourmet items..
