About Us



Jersey Girl Cheese is a small batch, farmstead cheesemaker taking great pride to carry on Southern Italian cheese making traditions. We bring you the most authentic, Italian style fresh and aged cheese.

Our cheese is made at Hillcrest Orchard and Dairy located in beautiful, Branchville, New Jersey in the heart of Sussex County. We use the milk from Hillcrest’s grass-fed Jersey cows to make our delicious cheese. The “Jersey Girls” graze our luscious, green pastures during the warmer months, and are fed a non-GMO diet of silage and hay grown on our farm.

We offer our customers the freshest, all natural cheese made by expert cheese makers from Italy. From the lightest, hand-stretched mozzarella to the creamiest ricotta!

One of the most unique features at the farm is our cheese cave. Dug into the hillside, it houses all of our aged cheese. Here you will find the most traditional Italian cheese such as Caciocavallo,Canestratto, Toma and Scamorza just to name a few. 


We currently have two locations where you can purchase Jersey Girl Cheese. Our farm store, located at 2 Davis Road, Branchville, NJ and our Cheese Shop, located at 179 East Main Street, Rockaway, NJ. When Farmer’s Market season begins, you can also find our cheese at various markets around New Jersey and New York. 


Come visit us at one of our locations so you can taste it for yourself and experience the freshness of authentic Italian cheese - right from our farm. We look forward to seeing you soon!
