Boxcarr Handmade Cheese is a family-established business with dreams of working with each other and with their slice of Southern red clay to create something wonderful, meaningful, and delicious. Since the rise of COVID-19, Boxcarr has seen a 70% sales decrease. Due to this decrease, their farm and the small dairies they purchase cow milk from could end up dumping their milk. They are choosing to continue to hand-make this valuable milk into delicious cheese and donate it to local organizations set up to feed those in need. These donations add up to almost 1000 lbs of cheese a week!

Support Boxcarr by buying their cheese from Orrman's Cheese Shop, liking them on Facebook, and following them on Instagram.
