About Us

The Farm

Sunset View Creamery’s artisan milk cheese is the result of five generations of dedicated family dairy farming on the same 348-acre farm that has been in the Hoffman family since 1905.  For over 110 years, Hoffman Farm has nourished Finger Lakes families with top-quality milk and cheese.

When George Hoffman and his wife Georgia purchased the spacious farm in the 1905, they raised 10 Holstein cattle that were the foundation for our current herd of over 85 cows and youngstock today.  Over the years, we have added a bit more “color” to our herd with the Ayrshire, Jersey, and Red and White Holstein breeds being represented, but the majority of our genetics trace back to those original cows.

We believe that consumers will appreciate where their cheese comes from and how the care that goes into making cheese aligns directly with the care that goes into the cows.  As far as certification goes, we believe in actions, not labels.  The exceptional care we take in raising, feeding, and handling our cows results in consistently high quality milk which translates into exceptional tasting farmstead cheeses.

The Creamery

In 2004, we started to add value to our milk with an artisanal cheese production facility constructed on the farm.  Our cheese business flourished as we added varieties of Cheddar, BelPaese, Harvati, and Heritage (a Parmesan/Swiss blend we created). Our cheeses are made with milk only from our own cows.  In the summer of 2018, Sunset View Creamery became a state-certified raw milk producer.

At the farm store, the we currently sell 10 varieties of raw and pasteurized milk cheese, seven varieties of cheese curd, raw milk, locally sourced beef, free-range eggs, fudge, maple syrup, honey, jams and jellies.  In addition, we offer a variety of handmade gifts.
