6th Generation Farmer
Hello Everyone! Thank you for taking the time to check out my website, learn about my cheeses and hear my story
I’m Amanda Kennedy, a 6th generation farmer who is committed to producing high quality milk and turning it in to quality artisan cheese!
Backroad Creamery is tucked away in the eastern region of the Appalachian Mountains of Pennsylvania. Cheese and cows are my passion!

Before opening Backroad Creamery in October 2016, I spent years studying the art of making cheese. Taking several cheese courses and learning techniques and backgrounds of cheese. Many hours were, and still are, spent making different cheeses and perfecting recipes so I can provide you with the highest quality cheese. We started out with curds, which extremely well received, and have since expanded our inventory to include Cheddar and Feta cheeses with more varieties to come!
I milk a handful of purebred Holstein cows, backed by some of the breed’s best pedigrees. My cows are also exhibited at different shows across the country, and their genetics are marketed via embryos and stud sales. I am proud to say my cows receive the best care possibly, they truly are the center of my business and part of my family!
