“Home of sweeties jumbo chocolate!”

In the early 1900’s, Grandpa Yarman sold his only possession, a portable RCA radio, for his first wheel of Ohio Swiss, and started his own cheese house, “Yarman’s” in West Salem, Ohio. Soon he started to smoke his own country hams and bacon and enlarged his store. His unique way of smoking meats and his reputation for quality spread throughout Ohio. In the thirties, Grandpa Yarman became a source for high quality meat and cheese, at a fair price. It was during this time that Grandpa Yarman took sick. His store, with no one to help smoke the meet or to get the cheese, fell on hard times. His daughter, Vera, now Grandma, met Grandpa and the two of them started to reconstruct what Grandma’s father had built. Grandpa Baum followed the same trials to the best cheese makers in Ohio and explored new areas in Ohio to obtain the best Colby, Baby Swiss, and many other types of Ohio cheeses. Grandpa Baum began adding gourmet foods and homemade candies, always aware of keeping the family religion of quality. As the years went on, the quality as well as the business grew, under the watchful eye of the new Grandpa and Grandma. The Baums enjoyed a most profitable life in business as well as being community-minded people. At the present time, their daughter and son-in-law carry on the family tradition, started by Grandpa Yarman. The tradition of quality in home smoked meats, superior Ohio cheeses, the best available candies and ice cream can be found at what is now known as Grandpa’s Cheesebarn and Village, located at I-71 & 250 in Ashland, Ohio.

Mixed feelings on Grandpa's Cheesebarn. We stopped by here in 2014 and spent hours and way too much money, trying all the goods. I guess Covid brought an end to the endless free samples. There is... Read more
