From the beginning Prairie Capital separated themselves with their consistent approach and genuine excitement around the people and business.  Prairie’s investment comes with total support for its management team and incredible resources to add value that would be out of reach for us as a standalone company.  Forever Cheese is a company built on relationships, a concept Prairie not only supports but values themselves in all aspects of its business.
