Dairy & Cheese

Whether you are looking for something to pour over your morning cereal or to round out the cheese tray at your next party, East End Food Co-op’s selection of high quality dairy products, and dairy alternatives, has you covered.

Local milk from Turner Dairy, Brunton Dairy, as well as local raw milk from Frank White Farm and Swiss Villa is at the center of our selection. National brands of organic and grass-fed milk round out the dairy aisle. The Co-op also carries a wide variety of specialty dairy like local goat’s milk, buttermilk, and cultured sour cream.

Dairy yogurt shares the case with soy, rice, and even yogurt made with coconut milk! Be sure to check out the local highlights amidst our yogurt selection, including organic offerings from Seven Star Farm and Greek yogurt from Pastitsio.

We carry a variety of butter from local farms and dairies, such as Minerva Dairy, Oasis Creamery, and Swiss Villa. You’ll also find the Organic Valley brand and even some imports from Ireland, Denmark, and France.

Our cheese department focuses on American Artisinal Cheeses with an emphasis on varieties made in the Eastern half of the country.  We have one of the best selections of locally made cheeses in Western Pennsylvania!  We aim to have a regular selection that includes favorites, staples, and the best of our region, alongside some highlights from other countries as well.  We strive to have all of our cheese be natural, and antibiotic and growth hormone free.


We also stock a wide variety of options for different diets and dietary needs, including cheeses that are naturally:

  • Lactose free
  • Low sodium
  • Gluten free
  • Grass fed
  • Raw
  • Organic
  • Vegetarian suitable
