"The opportunity to join Stage is outstanding," said Chuck Hellmer, the president of the creamery.
"With our diverse and unique offerings of goat and cow's milk cheeses, Stage will bring a new element in growing our brand and presence within local and regional markets."
Krista Morgan, general partner at Stage, said, "We could not be more delighted to bring Haystack into our portfolio. Supply chain issues during Covid-19 took a toll across the country but Haystack is well-equipped for a new season of growth and expansion."
Lauren Clough, operating partner at Stage, said, "We are here to preserve and elevate a brand that has a storied history and loyal following. With the highest level of quality standards, Haystack will focus on continuing to serve the local markets while expanding our reach nationally so that more consumers can experience this exceptional product."
