About Troyer Cheese

Troyer Cheese is located in the heart of Ohio’s Amish Country. Jonas Troyer, the founder, was a young Amish man who fell in love with an English lady when he was 20. He bought a station wagon, and sold locally-made cheese out of the back of that. Today, fifty-five years later, Troyer cheese offers a full line of premium Troyer deli and retail cheese and meats which they distribute to stores across 48 states. They are still a family-owned business, and they serve family-owned businesses such as the Homestead. Their pride and quality are reflected in their products, which we here at Homestead can certainly attest to.


Meet LJ, our deli manager.

Laura Jane, or as we like to call her, LJ, spent the first seven years of her life moving to a lot of different places as her dad was in the Air Force. After he retired, her family built a house out in the country of Rensselaer. Her mom homeschooled LJ and her six siblings, so she then spent her time either working on schoolwork or playing Indians in the woods with her younger brother.
