Landmark Creamery Provisions has opened at 6895 Paoli Road in the former home of Paoli Cafe & Grocery. It’s a retail store for Landmark Creamery, which Thomas Bates co-owns with cheesemaker Anna Landmark.

A retail store is a place to experiment with small batches, get feedback and tell their story directly to customers. Thomas Bates and Landmark have room in the back to start creating artificial “caves” to age the cheese, and may eventually move production to the site as well.
