Calhoun Co-op Creamery located in Churchtown, Iowa was started in the spring of 1896 by 20 local farmers who owned 210 cows. Today, Calhoun Creamery is ranked in the top 50 creameries in the country. We proudly serve patrons in northeast Iowa and southeast Minnesota.
The creamery manufactured butter until the 1960's, shipping as far as New York. Today, the creamery is used as a transfer station. Milk is hauled into the creamery in bulk trucks and is shipped out in semi-tankers. It is then used to make cheese. A retail store was added to the operation in the late 1980's.
Our retail store offers several varieties of cheese and butter products along with a few extras. You can stop in at our store or we would be glad to ship your order to you. The store is open daily from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., 7 days a week.
