American Cheese: A Family Business Cashes in on Research and Development

Two years after buying a small dairy farm in Willows, California, three brothers dug a deep cellar with their bare hands and the help of a horse and a fresno scraper.

Richard, Fred and John Rumiano, Italian immigrants, started experimenting with butter and cheese in 1921, and needed a storage facility that was both climate controlled and theftproof. They found themselves modernizing the cellars they remembered from the old country in Italy.

What the original Rumiano brothers couldn’t have foreseen was that investments in small technical changes to improve their cellar—like introducing adobe clay and thick concrete cellar walls as natural insulators—would one day be lucrative to their legacy.

Rumiano Cheese Co. pursues growth with organic and brand name products

By Kate Sander

CRESCENT CITY, Calif. — On the northern California coast, at the edge of the redwoods and shrouded in fog much of the year, sits Rumiano Cheese Co., an award-winning, family-owned cheese company whose success lies in its focus on sustainability and quality — from the farms where it gets its milk to the cheese plant.

The beginnings of Rumiano Cheese date back nearly a century to 1919 when the grandfather and great-uncles of today’s owners emigrated from Italy and purchased a dairy in Willows, California.

Rumiano Cheese Supports Northern California's Humboldt County Measure P

Rumiano Cheese Supports Northern California's Humboldt County Measure P

Milk for Rumiano Cheese comes from multi-generational family owned dairies in Del Norte and Humboldt counties in Northern California. Coastal mountain ranges and happy Jersey cows yield some of the cleanest milk on Earth and keeping the coastline pristine is incredibly important to us. Dairy is the largest agricultural export of Humboldt County, however fruit trees and vineyards have become more common in the valleys to the East. Fortunately, the small amount of agriculture in Humboldt County is not typically genetically modified, but there is an effort to prevent GMO crops from gaining a hold in the nearly untouched North Coast.

The Organic Industry is Growing

2012 Organic Industry Survey by the Organic Trade Association

The Organic Industry is Growing

Organic is this decade’s most common buzzword in the natural foods market.  However, organic farming is far from new. For thousands of years before modern fertilizers and chemicals were used, farmers relied on techniques such as crop rotation, manure fertilizers and other natural forms of pest control. Today, the majority of farming in the U.S. is done conventionally using chemicals for fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides.  The good news is, despite this, the organic industry in the US is growing.

The 2012 Organic Industry Survey was recently released by the Organic Trade Association (O.T.A) showing that due to consumer choice in the U.S., the organic industry grew by 9.5 percent in 2011 to reach over $31 billion in sales.  The growth of this industry is the “fastest growing segment of U.S. agriculture for over a decade,” Christine Bushway, Executive Director and CEO of the O.T.A stated.   “Consumers are increasingly engaged and discerning when they shop, making decisions based on their values and awareness about health.” Their purchasing decisions are attributed to the higher levels of education and awareness concerning organic versus conventional products.
