About September Farm +-

It all began when Dave Rotelle decided to try his hand at making cheese for the first time. This idea wasn’t just a Saturday afternoon activity. The idea was spurred after visiting cheese makers in New England while on a family trip. A dream was about to become reality. With a basic cheese-making kit and recipe in hand, he produced the first small wheel of cheese in his farmhouse kitchen. It was the first step in the realization of his dream to pursue a family business where they could work together and build a business that their children may one day call their own. It was part of a desire to carry on the Rotelle family name that had served the food industry for what would now become the fourth generation.

The farmstead/artisan cheese industry was a natural fit for Dave. His mother Joy was a fantastic cook. She enjoyed private catering and giving cooking lessons. She was known for her famous “cheesecakes.” Joy made these delicious cakes for the local restaurants in her community. This natural ability to become a cheese maker was befitting to a husband who had previously established their award-winning Dairy of Distinction (2002). He humbly received the honor of becoming Chester County Farmer of the Year in 2013.

With most of the main ingredients in place, great milk, and the ability to create and market outstanding cheese, Dave established September Farm Cheese in 2007. The entire family became involved in the business, and it wasn’t long before some family names began to show up on the cheese labels! Honey Brook Mild Cheddar and Medium Cheddar are named in honor of their community “Honey Brook,” producing a cheese that the town of Honey Brook could call their own.
