From the Farmer

Blue Ridge Dairy Co.

 Sterling, VA

Blue Ridge Dairy Co. was started in June of 1999 on a 10 acre farm in Lovettsville, VA by Paul Stephan. Paul is a graduate of The Culinary Institute of America and Florida International University's School of Hospitality Management. After college Paul began what he thought would be a long career in restaurant management, but after a few years realized his passion career would not be in cooking or managing restaurants. During a visit to Italy in early 1998, Paul realized that his favorite cheese, fresh mozzarella, was not being made in the U.S. to anywhere near the quality as it was in Italy. Upon his return, he and wife Alison promptly purchased the 10 acre farm in Lovettsville with no farming experience whatsoever! The cow, Betty, came next. Today, Blue Ridge Dairy Co. is a cheese, yogurt, and butter maker in Sterling, VA.
