Our Story


Farm and Family are at the heart of everything Crystal Farms does, which is why we support family farms throughout the Heartland by sourcing our dairy from Midwest farms. With the purchase of any of our products, you are joining the Crystal Farms family and supporting these farm families.


At Crystal Farms, we source our dairy from the Midwest to help the farmers and the Co-Ops they are a part of  thrive. We believe sourcing from family-owned dairy farms helps us deliver the quality cheese your family deserves.


Crystal Farms is happy to announce our partnership with Associated Milk Producers Inc., a dairy farmer-owned cooperative. This collaboration is a big step toward our goals of sourcing exclusively from family farms in the Heartland, and continuing to bring you high-quality cheese that is truly Co-op Crafted.

Co-Op Crafted

Humble Beginnings

In the 1920s, Nathan Friedell migrated from Russia and started Nathan’s Produce Company. In the ’30s, Julius Rosenberg also came to America from Russia and started his own egg business.

Becoming Crystal Farms

Through dedication to hard work and quality, both companies thrived and eventually merged in the 1970s – selling eggs, cheese and other dairy products under the Crystal Farms brand. Today, we’re proud to continue that commitment to wholesome, delicious Crystal Farms cheese.

What could be better than making cheese?

Making the world a better place


Supporting Our Community

We believe in supporting our community and spreading the love of cheese. That’s why we partner with All Square, a non-profit grilled cheese shop in south Minneapolis, and donate nearly all their cheese and butter supply. All Square helps formerly incarcerated individuals by employing them in the restaurant and providing professional development through its 12-month Institute.

Our commitment to quality lives on

From starting with high-quality ingredients sourced from Midwest farms, to carefully inspecting the finished product, we make sure our products are consistently satisfying. This commitment to quality has been a part of our culture from our humble beginnings to today.
