Our (mostly) Nubian dairy goats roam the woodland pastures around our home, browsing on whatever native flora is in season—tender buds of wild raspberry, the minty bark of yellow birch shoots, bouquets of goldenrod and aster. This grazing is supplemented with free-choice minerals, conservative amounts of organic grain (including whole grains), and organic second-cut hay. As a certified organic farm, we are committed to managing and feeding our goats 100% organically. For you the consumer, this means milk and cheese that is free of antibiotics, herbicides, pesticides, and GMO’s. For our goats, it means rotational grazing, nutrient-dense foods, and a little more effort on our parts to prevent health problems instead of routinely treating them with chemical dewormers or antibiotics. We know these choices are extremely important to us, and it is our hope that they are important to you too.
In 2013, after years of running our creamery out of a small (upstairs!?!?!) room in our house, we were finally able to realize the dream of expanding into a new building specifically designed to be a goat dairy and creamery, complete with an aging room for cheese. We milk six goats at a time with a pipeline system. Our milk is kept very clean and chilled quickly—which translates into sweet and delicious milk and cheese.
