Hudson Valley Creamery

Hudson Valley Creamery (HVC), located in Livingston, has been growing in Columbia County in recent years, continuing a long tradition of a strong agribusiness sector. The company produces artisan-style goat cheese in a facility that is the only of its kind on the East Coast. CEDC has worked with HVC to secure funding, including a $1 million state grant in 2015, and study the goat cheese industry.
