Avalanche Cheese Company
After a little over 20 years in the restaurant business, Wendy became captivated with the idea of cheese making as a way to stay connected to food yet transition out of the restaurant business. Wendy moved to Aspen, Colorado only to learn that there was not a dependable source of milk for the volume of cheese that she wanted and needed to produce. She and her husband invested in a small farm in Paonia,CO – a perfect fit - where they could raise goats and set up a dairy. The willingness of the community to help a “city girl” with a vision was truly heartening. Wendy soon set up a creamery in Basalt where she turns her Paonia milk into sure bliss.
