Silvery Moon Creamery at Smiling Hill Farm was founded by Jennifer Betancourt, along with the Knight family, in June of 2003. Jennifer was blessed with the opportunity to learn the art of cheesemaking at the Squire Tarbox Inn on Westport Island, and developed her passion in her kitchen in Portland. Jennifer brought alchemy of cheese making to Smiling Hill Farm, and invented several award winning cheeses during her time here.
In 2011, we welcomed our new cheesemakers (Below) Genevieve Johnson and Dorothee Grimm to the farm. Dorothee came to us by way of Germany through Montana, where she had spent her time wrangling sheep and microbes. Dorothee remains the head cheesemaker. Genevieve meanwhile has continued on another path, but she left her imprint on our cheeses and especially cheese names.
All of our products are handcrafted in small batches at Smiling Hill Farm, a family owned and operated dairy farm since 1720. The milk comes from Smiling Hill Farm and other Maine or New Hampshire dairy farms. These farms do not use artificial growth hormones or feed supplemented with antibiotics for their dairy cows, nor chemical fertilizer or pesticides on their pastures.
