Boxcarr Handmade Cheese

Due North from historic Hillsborough on Highway 86, past the familiar pine groves and derelict barns of an earlier farming era, stretches Carr Store Road in Cedar Grove, North Carolina. This is where you’ll find us. We are a first generation farming family working among generations-old farmsteads still in operation. We have been honing our skills for more than a decade, and we’ve been doing so on our own slice of southern red clay since 2009. Our family is Austin Genke, his wife Dani, and sister Samantha, and we own and operate Boxcarr Farms where we farm 30 acres of vegetables, pigs, chickens and goats. We started a food truck and catering company using our own produce and meat, and we did it while holding down “real” jobs to realize our ultimate goal: making and selling handcrafted artisan cheese to you!

In April 2014 we broke ground on a 2,900 square foot cheese-making facility and started making cheese in early 2015. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our families and friends.

For now, we will source Jersey and Holstein cow’s milk from a long-time neighbor, and Alpine, Nubian and Sannen goat’s milk from another nearby dairy. With Italian roots stretching from the Piedmont to Sicily, and with the help of local formaggiaia Alessandra Trompeo, our cheese is inspired by the small country farmsteads of Italy. Our experience and dedication to family, hard work, and good food are the soul of Boxcarr Handmade Cheese. We hope you’ll taste that in every bite.
