Birchrun Hills Farm

Birchrun Hills Farm is a family-owned dairy located in the highlands of Birchrunville, Chester County, Pa. The Millers caringly handcraft raw-milk cheese from the milk of the farm’s Holstein cows. Because the quality of milk defines the character of cheese, the cows’ well being comes first and no growth hormones are used.

Ken and Susan Miller take pride in the agricultural tradition of Chester County, Pa. Ken began farming as a teenager and offers over 30 years experience growing crops and raising livestock. A successful dairy farm since 1981 and selling cheese since 2006, Birchrun Hills Farm also raises whey-fed pork and grass- and milkfed veal.

The family commits themselves to farming using conservation-minded methods that build soil fertility and promote the growth of organic matter. The Miller’s sons, Randy and Jesse are also active in the farm operation. Ken and Sue are members of the American Cheese Society, Chester County Buy Fresh Buy Local, Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture and Pennsylvania Farmstead & Artisan Cheese Alliance.

Birchrun Hills Farm cheeses can be ordered by phone, e-mail or at one of the listed retail locations. Check back for monthly on-farm sale days, dates for dinner and tastings at local restaurants and other events where Birchrun cheese can be purchased and enjoyed.
