Blue Ridge Creamery | Travelers Rest, SC
Christian's journey in cheesemaking started as a hobby while work for Dell in Austin, TX. His instant passion for the craft was grounded in part by a sense of ancestral connection; Hansen’s grandfather and great-grandfather both operated creameries in his native Denmark. In 2016, Christian left behind the corporate world to found Blue Ridge Creamery in Travelers Rest, SC. There, he crafts seasonally inspired cheeses with milk from a local farmer’s small herd of Jersey cows.
