We started our rural adventure back in 2004 by purchasing our 10-acres of heaven. The 90+ year old farm is just the core of what was an 80-acre dairy about 50+ years ago. Now it’s our home we share with our herd of registered Nubian goats who graze its Roza watered pastures and alfalfa hay. By 2006 the beginnings of our herd were providing us with excess milk so we began making Chevre for our family and friends. They liked it so much that we decided to share it with more people by starting this small business. In March of 2011, we attained our Grade A dairy and Processors licenses by utilizing the original dairy parlor and milk room. The goats are milked every day and the milk is processed into cheese two to four times a week.
Our process, the pouring, ladling, flavor mixing and packaging, is all done by hand and, the results are worth it. Our Chevre is very creamy and mild favored. Many tasters comment that the texture is like cream cheese and there is no “goaty” flavor. But don’t worry, there is still a very nice tangy flavor at the end of each bite that entices you to want more. Currently we only produce artisan, farmstead Chevre in the following flavors.
Our current flavors include:
Original: Our original is lightly salted with sea salt. We want to make sure that the flavor is not overpowered by the salting. It is very mild which makes it very versatile.
Garlic & Onion: This is our most popular flavor and our personal favorite. It is a perfect balance of onion and garlic flavoring. This cheese has a great finish on your palate. It leaves you wanting more.
Spicy: This is a very fun cheese for us. Rudy’s pepper blends is the company that we get the spice from and it is anything but mild. Rudy calls this his Tri-Cities Blend (TCB). The red pepper blend is from 30 different kinds of peppers that are grown in the Tri-Cities area. The pepper flavor is apparent at the beginning of the bite, but once the cheese is gone, the full effect of the pepper blend is known.
Chocolate: This flavor is like cheese cake. Definitely a desert cheese.
