Our Heritage


Norman and Laura Biery, first generation

The Norman F. Biery Farm was working extremely hard to sell its milk to bottlers during the Great Depression. The farm, along with a group of other local Ohio dairy farms, started a co-op in 1929 to sell Swiss cheese that was made with the excess milk.

The cheese was sold at Farmers’ Markets in Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

But the Biery legacy traces back even further to the family’s home in Zweisimmen in the canton of Bern, Switzerland. Our company’s logo includes a modified version of the Zweisimmen coat of arms in honor of our homeland.

Now in our fourth generation of Biery family leadership, Biery Cheese continues to grow by making sure everything we do is focused on excellence. We now produce a wide variety of cheeses beyond just the Swiss that started it all.

Though the generations have changed, the family values of hard work and dedication live on in cheeses we know your whole family will love.
