Black Radish Creamery’s “Short” Story – Anne & John Reese

 

Black Radish Creamery Strawberry Rhubarb Preserves | The Welsh Hills Inn
An obsession with good food and great ingredients is at the heart of everything they do. From the beginning, handcrafting true artisan cheese was always their goal. Their long journey to cheese making took them on an unintentional path. It would lead us to create their first product, fruit preserves. Much to their surprise, it was not cheese but was created with cheese in mind.
In 2011, they left the Hudson Valley and returned to Ohio to begin their creamery. But first on the schedule was their wedding. Some of their favorite food memories while living in New York were akin to artisan cheese. For their “big day,” they wanted to create a one-of-a-kind cheese plate that would revive those memories and introduce them to their closest family and friends. Unable to find anything in the local market that matched their creative tastes and high standards for ingredients, they hit the back roads of John’s hometown in Amish country. It was there that they found a few small fruit farms harvesting perfectly ripe fruit. We then took to their kitchen, fruit in hand, and unknowingly, began crafting the very first product for Black Radish Creamery. That day they created an intensely concentrated blend of strawberries, rhubarb, Beaujolais wine reduction, and vanilla bean.  In short, “Billionaire” strawberry rhubarb preserves was born.
And So the Misnomer was Born
With much success at their reception and noting the frequent requests that followed, they realized that they created something special. Something that exceeded their demand for a premium yet unique local flavor. However, they created something that others were searching for as well. That summer, they set-up as Black Radish Creamery at the Granville Farmers’ Market and sold their only product, “Billionaire.” At the time, they truly believed that our cheese would not be far behind.
For the next few years, they became popularly known as the local misnomer. “A creamery that doesn’t make cheese.” This title, while funny, was one that they quickly wanted to lose. So, they tirelessly reminded people who purchased their fruit preserves that “the cheese is coming!” They were endlessly dealing with setbacks on their facility behind the scenes, but it was still slowly coming along. Meanwhile, their fruit preserves were getting national recognition by winning three Good Food Awards, including “Billionaire” strawberry rhubarb preserves in 2014.
In the summer of 2016, another serendipitous event happened when they found an opportunity to open a cheese shop inside the historic North Market in downtown Columbus. They did not hesitate for a moment! And, after a tremendous amount of work in a short time frame, they opened their retail shop that fall. Even though they still did not have their own cheese to sell, they knew it would be soon!
Finally!!
Six short years later, they finally shook that “misnomer” title. In the summer of 2017, Black Radish Creamery began handcrafting all their artisan food products in their state-of-the-art facility near Granville, Ohio. Their facility hosts a creamery, complete with two custom cheese caves. It also features a versatile commercial kitchen where they make their delectable, memorable preserves. All of this sitting on 18 beautiful acres of untouched land – which of course, they have BIG plans for!
Now, with a tremendous amount of pride, they can finally say, “Our cheese is here!” All along, their greatest intention had been and continues to be to provide people with the kind of outstanding food that has fueled their biggest dreams and fondest memories.
— food made with love, science, and soul
