Tunnel Cheese Factory The Villecco Brothers cheese factory in Tunnel made butter, ricotta and parmesan with milk from small farms that dotted the local landscape. Within a generation after WW II, the cheese factory and most of the farms were gone. The control over the market by the mega food companies effectively hollowed out the local economy. Our interest in producing labels for farmers stems from our own commitment to the revival of the local farm economy and sustainable agriculture.
   
The driving force behind sustainable agriculture are the consumers who are seeking out high-quality, locally-produced food that has integrity and taste. We operated a 40-family Community Supported Agriculture Project (Whistle-Stop Gardens CSA) from 1994 to 2006 on our 80-acre farm, just down the road from the cheese factory. We were able to connect our CSA members with regional farms who were marketing poultry, lamb, pork, beef and cheese. A small herd of American Milking Devons, laying hens and broilers round out our diverse farm.
