Our Cheese

All of our products are made from milk that is produced by our own herd of Nubian goats. We have a commitment to raising our animals and caring for our land with a sustainable mindset. We never use steroids, artificial hormones, preservatives, or anti-caking agents.

Chevre

Plain Chèvre  Gold Medal, Best in Class — 2023 US Championship Cheese Contest

Our Chèvre, the classic goat cheese, is smooth enough to spread on a cracker with a knife, or can be crumbled on a salad by scraping a fork over the top of the cheese. Available in a multitude of flavors!

Award-Winning

Goat Milk Cheddar

Our Goat Milk Cheddar is mild in sharpness, crumbly yet creamy on the palette. It has the richness of a well-aged cheese with a distinct flavor profile.

Gateway

Our first hard cheese! Named “gateway” because we felt that is was a great cheese to introduce “goat cheese” to those that were leary of trying. A washed curd, semi-soft cheese that is mild in flavor with a slight buttery finish. We make Plain, Roasted Garlic, and Triple Pepper.

GoChego

A goat version of the Spanish Sheep milk cheese, Manchego. Aged at least three months with a natural rind that has been washed with organic olive oil, GoChego has a wonderful nutty flavor. Its smooth and suitable as a table cheese toward the middle of the wheel, while harder, and more gradable like a parmesan on the outer edge.

Goat Milk Feta

A classic all goat milk feta. Compared to other feta cheeses, we consider ours to be medium in flavor and salt content. Available in block, crumbled, or in oil with our Tuscany seasoning. Each are delightfully good and are interchangeable as well as having unique applications.

Goat Milk Caramel Sauce

As unique a product as you will find. Our goat milk caramel sauce is no ordinary caramel. Made in traditional “Mexican Cajeta” style, we spend hours boiling milk, pure non-GMO cane sugar, and a touch of baking soda, into a thick syrup that has no match as an ice cream topping, fruit dip, or used as a natural coffee creamer. Its complex flavor makes it stand apart from sugar based carmel sauces that often contain high fructose corn syrup.
