A manager of The Cheese Store of Silver Lake will be opening Milkfarm,  an artisan cheese store in Eagle Rock that is taking over a former office space in the 2100 block of Colorado Boulevard. Leah Park Fierro said her store, which she plans to open by late February or early March, will be centered around a communal table where customers can enjoy cheese plates, quick bites, sandwiches, pastries as well as local beer and wine. Milkfarm will also host wine and cheese classes and “meet the maker” nights.

“l’m so excited to open my first small business venture in downtown Eagle Rock,” says Fierro in a press release. I hope Milkfarm can serve the needs of local residents beyond just providing artisan cheese, beer and wine, but additionally expose the community to other local hidden gems.”
