The “Store” is open for business Monday-Saturday, with over 40 varieties of cheese, yogurt, drinkable yogurt, butter, cheese curd, and other dairy products available for purchase. Other Amish made goods are also available at the shop, including quilts, toys, furniture, and more. Valley View Cheese is a hub for the local Amish community.
Back in the early 1960’s, the present building was constructed as a cheese factory to process Amish milk. Over 70% of the population in the Town of Leon is Old Order Amish, making this a perfect location for the plant to utilize their milk.
Over the past years, several companies operated the building. The Amish are now controlling the use of the facility, recently refurbishing it for both cheese and yogurt production. Renovation was completed over the last two years, with brand new equipment being placed into service near the end of August 2019.
