LOCATION:   Eichten’s Market and Bistro – Buffalo meat, cheeses, specialty items and a café!  Eichtens is a family-owned business that started making their own cheeses in 1976.    They are well known for their Dutch Gouda, produced just like on the farms in Holland, and also their Tilsit cheese and cheese spreads.  In1987, the American Bison arrived on the farm – a natural healthy meat to compliment the natural cheeses!  Eichten’s has wone many awards throughout the years at regional cheese competitions, and was honored in 1999 with the highest score ever given!  In 2008, Eichten’s was recognized as the first farm in the nation to ever produce European cheeses.   Visit their local market and café, or at Farmer’s Markets this summer, including Minneapolis, St. Paul, Roseville, Richfield and Maplewood.
