La Clare Family Creamery, Malone, Wis., and Saxon Creamery, Cleveland, Wis., and Lamagna Cheese Co., Verona, Pa., combined forces to create Mosaic Meadows, a company of family-operated cheesemakers.

The merger will allow each creamery to further expand its artisanal product lines, while sharing resources in marketing, service and sales capabilities.

“’Mosaic Meadows’ is the perfect name,” says Alex Coenen, director of business development for the newly formed company. “A mosaic is an assembly of small colorful pieces that combine to create a larger work of art. Our newly launched cheese-marketing company brings together some of the most highly awarded, globally recognized cheese artisans in the world, and we want them to continue being leaders in their respective specialties.”

Today, Mosaic boasts a national sales force and coast-to-coast broker and distribution network.

LaClare Family Creamery is a family-operated business that includes a processing plant, retail shop and restaurant.

Lamagna Cheese processes Italian-style cheeses from family recipes.

Saxon Creamery produces hand-crafted artisan cheeses from quality ingredients, one wheel at a time, starting with locally sourced fresh cow milk.

“Whether it’s goat or cow milk cheeses, each of our creameries is united by a commitment to top-quality ingredients and proprietary recipes,” Coenen says.
