Specialised growth venture fund Stage has acquired Haystack Mountain Creamery, a cheese producer based in Colorado, US.
Founded in 1989, Haystack specialises in goat’s and cow’s milk cheeses, made using traditional cheesemaking techniques.
The company – which operates its own facility in Longmont, Colorado – says that its cheeses are free of additives and preservatives.
“We are here to preserve and elevate a brand that has a storied history and loyal following,” said Lauren Clough, operating partner at Stage.
“With the highest level of quality standards, Haystack will focus on continuing to serve the local markets while expanding our reach nationally so that more consumers can experience this exceptional product.”
Haystack president Chuck Hellmer added: “The opportunity to join Stage is outstanding. With our diverse and unique offerings of goat and cow’s milk cheeses, Stage will bring a new element in growing our brand and presence within local and regional markets.”
The financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.
