Eagle Rock gets a cheesy start to the year via Milkfarm, an artisan cheese shop founded by Leah Park Fierro (Silverlake Cheese Shop) and opening some time in late February. Currently in construction, the shop takes over a former office building on Colorado Blvd, right in the main drag of Eagle Rock.
Planning a wide selection of charcuterie, cheeses, and other artisanal-based products, Fierro is applying for an ABC license to serve wines and craft beers on site. Finally, Milkfarm will preparecustom cheese plates, sandwiches, and gift baskets.
Eagle Rock as a whole hasn't been getting quite the development that Highland Park has gotten over the past year, perhaps due to higher rents in the area, but the proximity to Glendale and Pasadena, as well as the rest of the Eastside, makes it a strategic place to start putting in quality food establishments.
