WHO WE ARE
Schnabeltier is the German word for platypus. The schnabeltier is an amazing animal made up of many different parts to create a unique whole. Our founders thought the name was fitting for our company, which is the only known facility to focus on beer, cheese and wine production under the same roof. Our high-quality artisan cheeses are crafted to pair exquisitely with our award-winning wines and exciting craft brews. Utilizing old world methods and locally sourced ingredients, we produce delicious, fresh products that are better together.
Main production at Schnabeltier is out of a modern 7,500 square foot facility in Rochester, IN. It features state-of-the-art cheesemaking, winemaking and brewery equipment and a large cheese aging room that can hold up to 20,000 lbs. of cheese. The front of the building features a large retail space for wine, cheese and beer tastings, parties, and direct sales. Outdoor seating is also available during the summer months to enjoy the warm weather and events.
Schnabeltier uses top quality, locally sourced milk from a small family farm called Lemler Farms located in Bourbon, Indiana. The herd consists of 80 Guernseys, Milking Shorthorns, Brown Swiss, and Ayrshires. All of the cows are grass fed and free to roam the large pastures around the farm. The entire herd is hormone free, and the farm has been certified. The milk from Lemler Farms is RBST free and high in butterfat and protein to give our cheeses the best flavor possible. Our Master Cheesemaker hauls all of the milk from the farm to Schnabeltier where it is tested in the on-site lab to ensure consistent quality both upon arrival and before off-loading.
