Employee Spotlight: Jeff Mulling

Andi Frey - Tuesday, May 22, 2012
"Finding your way home" has new meaning for Jeff Mulling, the new Dairy & Farm Manager at Flat Creek Lodge. Mulling is a native of Midville, just 12 miles away from the Lodge, but he spent the last 28 years in Savannah working in the banking industry. When presented with the opportunity to work at the Dairy, he was thrilled to find himself once again among the community and environment he calls home.

Though the banking industry may seem like a world away from working on a dairy and farm, Mulling says that the two aren't all that different. He uses the skills he honed within the banking industry every single day at the Lodge.

A core focus of his plan for the future of the dairy and farm is to increase the brand awareness and position Flat Creek as a high quality producer of cheese, berries and mushrooms. The team will also look to expand selling to distributors to help get products to as many end consumers as possible. He enjoys working with the dairy team, and credits them for producing a quality and innovative line of artisan cheese. The team is always experimenting and has plans to expand into new categories and flavor profiles going forward.

Mulling finds just being on the Flat Creek property "calming," and he is thankful for the opportunity to be at the Lodge, calling it a "dream come true!"

Andi Frey - Wednesday, February 23, 2011



We'll be at the Georgia Organics 14th Annual Conference & Expo "GO GROW!" and would love to see you there! We'll be sampling some of our artisan cheeses fresh from the dairy and mushrooms from the farm.  The Expo is March 11-12, 2011, in Savannah, Georgia, at the International Trade & Convention Center.

"Little Martha" - Our New Cheese!

Andi Frey - Wednesday, February 23, 2011
We are SO thrilled to announce the introduction of our new cheese, the Little Martha.  Keith has been working on this one and it shows in the flavors.  It's a soft Italian style cheese, which pairs well with fresh fruit and full bodied wines.  It's more of a dessert cheese, and it's sure to be the perfect end to any meal.  We'll post photos of this baby as soon as we have some!
