We are Leslie Jacobs and Matthew Brichford, and we have lived on the Brichford family farm since 1981. We have built our married life together on the farm, raising three daughters who have spent their summers milking cows and chasing the other animals (and their sisters) around the fields. We are proud to be an active part of our local community, celebrating our rich family history in the area, which dates back to 1819. Today, Matthew manages the farm and makes our artisan cheese. Leslie and daughter Maize help with the cheese marketing. Daughter Miah is in charge of milking and helps with grazing management. Welsh Corgi Mirk is an active worker on the farm, running alongside the cows encouragingly.
It has been a goal of ours to stay on the family’s Hoosier Homestead property. With fifteen years in the dairy business, we believe we have developed a vision that will allow us to continue to operate our family farm in a sustainable way for generations to come.
