Cheesemakers's picture

Employer Summary


Cheesemakers was founded by James C. Keliehor, P.E., but cheesemaking runs in the family. At a young age, James learned how to make dairy products from his aunt and uncle on the family farm in South Texas. Together the family made fresh butter, soft cheese curds and buttermilk. While the family didn’t know it at the time, making dairy products together was the start of the thriving family business that they are proud of today.

At Cheesemakers, we take pride in our roots. Cheesemaking in Texas is not common, but James, the son of a farmer and rancher, felt strongly about manufacturing his cheese in the Lone Star State. Today, the Cheesemakers manufacturing plant in Montgomery County has co-packing capabilities, pilot plant product development, label development, unique sizes and packaging options, and nutritional database and testing capabilities.
