About this project

Parmela Creamery is a state of the art creamery fully dedicated to nut milks, creams and cheeses.  We're on a mission to prove nut cheeses can be incredible and to facilitate the transition of our society towards a plant based diet.  With heart disease effecting so many and the growing demand we place on our environment, it's critical for society to switch to a plant based diet to improve our health and sustainability.  We found that animal milk cheese was the number one thing people were having trouble with.

Nut cheeses are the natural next step for artisan cheeses.  Nuts are jam packed with healthy fats and nutrients, they blend easily into rich nut creams, and have the greatest flavor potential of all milks. 

Having developed our next generation cheeses we need your help to buy the equipment neccesary for production.  This includes a cheese cave, incubation room, the ingredients for the initial batches, and shipping costs to fullfil the orders which will account for about $45 per refrigerated order.

Risks and challenges

With our own creamery where we'll be hand crafting the cheeses and the development of the cheeses now complete, we know we'll be able to produce the highest quality nut cheeses.

While we're confident we can ship in December, it is possible that a portion of the orders would be pushed back to early January.
