Brother and sister team Samantha and Austin Genke founded Boxcarr Handmade Cheese in 2015 after spending six years developing Boxcarr Farms with heirloom produce, raising a beautiful herd of dairy goats, several litters of heritage pigs, and flocks of pasture-raised chickens and turkeys. 

They take inspiration from small Italian farmstead creameries. Their local milk is sourced from a few small family-owned dairies who raise their cows with the greatest of care and highest standards. Milk from their own loved herd of mixed-breed dairy goats is also part of the mix! In addition to supporting these small dairy businesses, they employ a handful of locals, teach through internships, and employ youth through Orange County Second Family Foundation.

They distribute their artisan cheeses nationally, while also selling locally to restaurants like COPA, shops, and directly to shoppers at the Durham Farmers Market.

Their dedication to family, hard work, and great food are the soul of Boxcarr Farms and Boxcarr Handmade Cheese, and you'll taste it in every bite.
