Sona Creamery posted the sad news on their Facebook page:

“We are sad to announce we will be closing our doors Monday, April 11, 2016.

After 3 years of working the regulatory chain to get raw milk in the District, and become the first cheese creamery, we were paying rent for space that wasn’t supporting itself. Unfortunately, this has made it impossible to remain open.

Even though Sona’s concept took too long to fully implement, we are proud of what we were able to accomplish.

First commercial cheese creamery in the history of DC
Were able to bring first raw milk into the District since 1952
Maintained four stars on Yelp
2015 Slow Food award winner
2014 Hilly Awards runner up for best new restaurant and best new business on the Hill
Numerous write ups by food writers and columns
Thrillist top new DC restaurants of 2014

We are grateful for the memories and wonderful people we met along this journey. Thank you for all of your support.”
