The Kent Walker Artisan Cheese Story:
"Great food and drink are my life's passions. I left a successful engineering career to apply that passion towards amateur cheesemaking: cool whip container molds, bricks and metal rods for a press, & aging cheeses in the vegetable crisper with the fridge temp set as high as my roommate would allow me to. While casting about, working jobs at wineries, breweries, and distilleries I fell in love with the production industry. In 2011, I decided to unite my joy for great food & drink, my love of cheesemaking and experience working in production:Kent Walker Artisan Cheese was born. We grew from a small batch maker in a church kitchen to a full fledged production facility and tasting room. It is a true pleasure to make cheese from the delicious raw cow, goat, and sheep milk of Central Arkansas.
At Kent Walker Artisan Cheese, we proudly offer the highest quality cheese possible. We have a strong team of cheesemakers, affineurs, mongers, and volunteers. Every wheel of our handcrafted, natural rind cheese ages to perfection in our walk-in cave. We believe that working with local farmers and keeping animal welfare a top priority creates a better cheese and sustainable, people-first model of business."
