Chapel’s Country Creamery is an independent, family owned and run farm and Maryland's first producers of Raw and Pasteurized Milk Cheese. Chapel cheese and yogurts start with fresh raw milk produced on our family's Grade A dairy farm in Maryland. Our dairy herd of Jersey Cows graze on clover and rye grass, producing our high quality milk, rich in cream. The milk is all natural and contains no synthetic hormones, antibiotics, or chemical compounds. We then turn that milk into handcrafted Chapel's Country Creamery Artisinal Cheeses and yogurts, ensuring the highest quality and consistency possible.

Healthy, delicious, handcrafted, just darn good.,
Chapel’s Country Creamery produces Artisan cheeses. What this means in a nutshell is that we make small batches, we work hard on consistency and quality control, we like trying new combinations and creating new varieties of gourmet cheese. Our current varieties include Chapel Cheddar, Amber 16 Cheddar, Bay Bleu, Talbot Reserve and to celebrate our 10th year, in honor of our Jersey, Rainey, the gal who inspired us to start making cheese, Rainey’s Dream, a Camembert style cheese. Want to have some for your very own? We offer our cheeses in the Mid-Atlantic region at grocery stores and markets, a number of wineries and vineyards. We only sell our farm fresh yogurt at Farmer’s Markets, to make sure it stays its freshest. We are also very flattered to have received numerous accolades from chefs in the Washington D.C., Viginia, Delaware, and Maryland areas, and they use our cheeses and yogurts in their recipes!
