Welcome to Eichtens Cheese

Eichten’s Cheeses are an all natural European Style Cheese made on the family farm from cow’s milk.  Producing a quality artisan cheese on the farm since 1976, their commitment to quality cheese making is evident in the products they produce.   

Pure Ingredients – All of Eichten’s natural cheese are made on the family farm in Minnesota from fresh cow’s milk.  We add no coloring, artificial flavors, preservatives or GMO Rennet (our milk contains no growth hormones, antibiotics or rBGH). 

Eichtens cheese is hand made in an open vat which is identical to the way cheese is made on the farms in Holland and throughout Europe.

Aging Rooms are kept at a precise temperature and the cheese is moved and turned daily for correct breathing and aging.  We age our cheese 60 days or longer – the longer the aging period, the stronger the flavors.

Eichtens Cheese welcomes Third Generations to the family business.   

  • Brenda Carlson is Co-Owner of Eichtens Cheese
  • Nick and Michelle Pratt are Co-Owners of Eichtens Market & Grill

Eichtens Solar Garden
Eichtens Solar Panels

Eichtens Hidden Acres is in on the ground floor of alternative energy technology here in Minnesota. 

We have installed our own solar panels to provide energy for our cheese making operation and have set up a 22 acres community solar garden power system. 

The biggest advantage of solar energy is that it is a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.  It is clean and silent and does not use any fuel but sunshine.  Solar power energy benefits not only people but also the environment.
