The Story

The family farm is a precious commodity. Growing up in the 1970s and 1980s in the hills of the Catskills, the family farm was the livelihood for many of our friends and neighbors. I had the privilege of spending countless hours on a small dairy farm owned and operated by a family of multigenerational farmers. It was an awesome way in which to learn and explore from the perspective of a gangly little kid who adored all living creatures.

As an adult, a profession in the Real Property sector and my roles as wife and mom took me far away from the hills of the Catskills and the Teeple Brothers dairy farm, yet a big piece of my heart still belonged there.

Fast forward to 2011, when while attending a neighborhood party, Patty Casella and I began chatting about a collaboration to create a destination in our community which would pay homage to the old time family farm. We began planning a way of teaming up to provide the finest quality home churned ice cream and fresh baked goods in our region. We felt that there was a need for a place in Canandaigua where people could gather to celebrate with friends and family while enjoying “happy foods” in a fresh new environment.

Cheshire Farms Creamery is the result of that vision and we are committed to providing that destination for our guests to visit “every season and for any reason”.

Experience the best of the Finger Lakes, celebrate the day at the Creamery – you deserve it!!
