It began with a building in need of love and a town in need of cheese. In the winter of 2008 Karen Porth, a physician in need of a sabbatical, and her architect husband Andrew, who has a professed weakness for run down buildings, purchased the structure at 105 W 12th St. and began demolition work.
Nine months later, Babcock & Miles, Ltd., Merchants of the Delectable, opened its doors to the delight of local and visiting turophiles (cheese lovers) and enophiles alike.
In April 2016 Steve and Kim Haman purchased Babcock & Miles from its founders, Andrew and Karen Porth. Steve was hired in April 2009 as Sales and Marketing Manager and brought with him a passion for fine food and wine that has only grown over the past 7 years.
Steve and Kim, along with their devoted staff are committed to honoring the founders vision of being the Merchants of the Delectable!
