It's really an amazing piece of machinery. The machine was originally designed in about 1946 or so. Our machine is not quite that old, but we are checking into the history of our machine, as it is a rebuilt machine.
However, when you seen the level of manufacturing in the rebuild...let's just say...AMAZING!
As with all machines designed around that time period there are very little eletrical sensors, it's all mechanical.
This means that we can tune and dial in every aspect of how it folds the wrapping paper around the cheese.
This process of getting the machine to love us as much as we love it has been both challenging as well as rewarding in so many educational aspects.
We are putting together a moving showing how it works...given the holiday season is approaching..don't hold your breathe.
Please check out some of the clips that we have put on Facebook.
Have a great day,
Birgit & Robert

The wrapping machine will ship tomorrow or beginning of next week...
In the meantime, here is a nice slide show of the machine up to this point...
Thank you for visiting our site.
We are all so proud of what we do, when you hear some nice story involving our cheese...well, it's just a heart warming...
SO......Please file out a love story if you get a chance. We love to hear the stories and pass the along to the staff.
As for the rest of what is going on...we are mostly waiting on the wrapping machine now....gonna be interesting...
Today marks 3 weeks (or so) until our packaging machine comes.
This week will see some construction planning, a whole bunch of cheese going out, as well as a bunch being made.
The web site is going along quite well. It's crazy, all the updates and work, cleaning, organizing, and applying 10 years of experience with the system has resulted in a much easier site to maintain as well as the fact that it has all the same content but is only 30% of it's previous size. This means that we can now update and maintain information to make you happier!! :) (which leads to us selling more cheese...) :)
We added a feature to tell us about a time that you remember having a great experience with our cheese. We would love to hear those stories and pass them on to the staff, everyone loves a good story! (Especially when it is something then work so hard to create!)
The recipe database should be back online, looking super cool and great, in the next few days.
Other than that... Have a great week!
