Kalona Creamery Shop & Deli Opening January 19, 2017

Kalona, IA (December 8, 2016)

Kalona Creamery, the newest member of the Open Gates Business Development Corporation family, is pleased to announce the opening of Kalona Creamery Shop & Deli on January 19, 2017. The much anticipated opening–originally scheduled for mid-December–has unfortunately been delayed due to additional improvements. Currently, our construction crews are busy finishing the retail space, installing counters and shelving, and adding finishing touches!

Hi Shirley! We will be selling fresh cheese curds when we open, but they are going to be sourced from WW Homestead Dairy out of Waukon, Iowa. After the store opens, our construction crew will shift gears to work on the production side of things in 2017. We hope to making our own curds at this facility soon!

So glad to see this building is being used again. I missed the wonderful cheese that was always made and served there.
I always made it a ‘Have To Stop There’ on way back from Iowa City.

I can’t even be there for it, but I am still excited for you. What a draw for our little corner of Iowa. We bless the finishing and opening, and pull in the people to see it.
