The folks at Quail Run Creamery know exactly how to inspire creative fall cooking with cheese making and cooking classes.

When fall arrives, it’s like someone flipped the lights back on the kitchen. Goodbye, outdoor grill; see you next year. Hello again bread pans, slow cooker and new recipes.

The folks at Quail Run Creamery know exactly how to inspire that seasonal impulse for creative fall cooking. Located in Gaston in the foothills of the Coast Range, this small, family-owned creamery crafts mozzarella, feta and chevre from the milk of Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats. This year their feta won second place at the American Cheese Society Competition. Quail Run will schedule advanced classes and private parties. If you can’t pay a visit this fall, get a taste of Quail Run Creamery Cheese at nearby restaurants (find a list on their website), or at the Gaston Market.
