Years ago I fell in love with Traders Point Creamery, a 100% organic grass-fed dairy farm and creamery located northwest of Indianapolis. We returned this spring break, and we all fell in love with it again. Not only do they offer a true farm to table experience with ingredients straight from their farm, but every time we visit we feel welcome as if we’re family returning for a visit.
We entered through the doors of the1860s barn passing the yummy goods in the Farm Store. After a flight of stairs, we were welcomed into the loft of the barn. What a sight! We couldn’t help stare at handcraftsmanship of the wooden beams; so rustic and cozy!
And yes, they have a dairy bar with ice cream, smoothies, milkshakes, pies, and more! Next to the Dairy Bar is the cheese cave where they age their cheeses. So many cheeses!
Traders Point ages their own artisan cheeses so it made perfect sense to start with a cheese board. Everything was delicious! We really couldn’t get enough of the locally sourced honey and honeycomb.
Once the cheese board came out, this girl couldn’t resist and went straight for the camembert.
Everything they offer is good, so it was hard to choose what to get. We decided to try a few of their specialties. Everything that touched our lips was heaven. Loved, loved, loved the macaroni and cheese. We’re talkng smoked brisket, braised greens, leeks, and their cheddar blend. Wow, it was comfort food at its best! I wish I could have this every day.
Their grilled cheese sandwiches are also phenomenal. It’s a great way to try out their artisan cheeses, plus you’re able to add a few ingredients. I had mine with bacon and spinach.
My husband raved about the kale salmon salad topped with TPC’s Sheet’s Creek cheddar and beets. This beet lover couldn’t get enough!
The kids were happily munching away at their chicken and cheese quesadillas. The kids menu also offered some of their most popular items like the grilled cheese and mac n’ cheese, but they just shared some of ours. Everything comes with fresh fruit, carrots, and yogurt dipping sauce.
We sampled their cottage cheese, and oh my. If you’re not a cottage cheese fan, you’ll be turned. It’s a European-style cultured cottage cheese made in small batches using the traditional methods used in small cottages hundreds of years ago. My picky kids could not get enough. We even brought home a jar home, and it was gone in one sitting. We are absolute fans!
Even though we were way too full, we just had to order ice cream. After all, we were at a creamery. My husband opted for their apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
The Farm Store
Don’t miss stopping by the shop and bringing a few goodies home. We tried their yogurt, cheese dip, and cottage cheese. Loved it all! You can find their products nationwide.
- Bring a cooler! You’ll want to pack a lot of goodies home. You must try their fromage dip which goes absolutely perfect with crackers and pretzels. The yogurts are great too! And their awesome European style cottage cheese. It all comes in their glass jars so just be a little careful.
- If it’s nice out, take a stroll around the farm. Grab a map at the Farm Store, then explore! Follow along the 1.5 mile walking trail and view their wildlife flora, historic barns, the milking barn, and gardens. See their herd of Brown Swiss and Jersey cows plus other animals, ($2/pp)
- Watch the miking process in action. They milk the cows twice a day and offer visitors the chance to see them get milked in the evening. (Free)
If you’re ever in the area, you have to stop by Traders Point. How often do you find places that offer delicious, organic food straight from the farm in an amazing atmosphere? If we lived in the area, we would visit all the time.
