Parish Hill Creamery Honored in Boston Magazine May Issue

Peter Dixon, Rachel Fritz Schaal, and Alex Schaal, Parish Hill Creamery

Drawing on three-plus decades of experience, Dixon launched Parish Hill in 2013 with his wife, Rachel, and sister-in-law, Alex, to craft cheeses by traditional methods. Fresh cow’s milk from neighboring Elm Lea Farm stars in the Westminster West creamery’s seasonal creations, which are made with hand-harvested sea salt and homemade starter cultures (microbes that facilitate the ripening process). This painstaking effort is paying off: Multiple Parish Hill varieties have netted recent American Cheese Society awards.
