Goat Cheese

Our Milk | We believe that a great cheese starts with great milk. Our goats have access to pasture every day. They never receive antibiotics, hormones, corn, soy, wheat, silage or animal bi-products. We farm sustainably without using any chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.

Farmstead | Our cheeses are made on our farm, by us, with milk from our goats. We never use milk from other farms.

Artisan | We make our cheeses by hand in small batches so the end product is pure perfection.

Fresh | Our cheese is always made with fresh milk and doesn’t contain any preservatives. We use organic ingredients or produce grown right here on the farm.

Aged Goat Milk Cheeses

available in handcut wedges of varying sizes.

Our aged cheeses are raw, aged a minimum of 60 days and are only made with fresh milk from our goats. Since we make the cheese ourselves in small batches we may have limited availability at times. You may notice slight variations in flavor throughout the year depending on the type of pasture the goats are on and butterfat content of the milk.
