You’re Guaranteed To Love A Trip To This Epic Cheese Farm In Montana
Victor is a sleepy little farming town in Ravalli County. Home to about 750 people and many animals, it’s best known for its Field of Screams pumpkin patch that takes place every October. But should you find yourself in the area, make sure you make your way to Lifeline Creamery & Farm Store, especially if you’re a cheese lover.
Lifeline Creamery & Farm Store is located at 2427 Meridian Road, right off Highway 93.
Lifeline was founded in 1978 by a group of people with a desire to grow nutritious organic food.
Today the farm is a partnership between three of its earliest members. The farm has two distinct parts, Lifeline Farm and Lifeline Produce. Cheese is made once or twice a week here, and they also make butter and bottle fresh cream weekly.
The animals here are well taken care of and encouraged to graze.
All of their feeds are organically grown with no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or insecticides. The animals receive no growth or production hormones, no routine antibiotics, and no animal by-products in their feed.
The mild cheddar and Montana Jack cheeses are incredible.
The varieties of cheese made at the farm varies. Lifeline's cheeses are hand-crafted in small batches using milk exclusively from their own brown Swiss cows. This breed produces a milk high in proteins and solids, which is ideal for cheese production.
You can visit Lifeline Monday-Saturday from 11 AM until 6 PM on weekdays, 4 PM on Saturdays.
They also sell butter, milk, beef and pork sausage. Their products can be found at Farmers Markets and specialty grocery stores all over Western Montana.
The Lifeline Creamery & Farm Shop is a beautiful place to visit. Farms like this are what make Victor one of Montana’s more
charming small towns.
