For six generations the Young family has been running the dairy farm in Yellow Springs. This working farm has grown over the years. In the 60’s they got into the ice cream business, in the 70’s they added the bakery, in the 80’s they built the restaurants, in the 90’s they added entertainment with miniature golf, batting cages and driving range and eight years ago they added cheese making to the line up and this week they celebrate all things cheese!
Watch or join the fun run! ‘The Cheddar Challenge‘ – a 5k trail run starting at 9am on Saturday, June 10th. They’re expecting up to 1,000 5K runners and walkers!

Fresh Cheddar Curds (cheese before it is pressed and aged)
Curds are just fresh cheddar cheese that haven’t been pressed into a hoop and aged. Curds have a mild taste — they haven’t developed the stronger cheddar flavor. Curds are delicious as a snack and can be used in many tasty ways. Their best selling curd is Young’s Deep fried breaded cheddar cheese curds, sold as a side item at both restaurants in traditional, buffalo and Sweet chili style.
