Hand-crafted cheese from the Foothills of the Carolinas

Blue Ridge Creamery was founded by Christian Hansen in 2015. Christian's journey in cheesemaking started as a hobby while work for Dell in Austin, TX.  His instant passion for the craft was grounded in part by a sense of ancestral connection; his grandfather and great-grandfather both operated creameries in his native Denmark.  And so in 2015 Christian left behind the corporate world to follow his passion, with the goal of putting Travelers Rest, SC on the world map of cheese.
