About Us

in Downeast Maine. Because we use only the fresh milk from our herd of about 100 Nubian, Saanen and Alpine dairy goats, our cheeses are truly “farmstead”. We make a large variety of different goat cheeses, both fresh and surface ripened (such as Brie, Camembert, Valencay and more), several of which are award-winners. All of it is made using the old-fashioned European method of hand-ladling curd into cheesecloth bags or individual forms. While far more time-consuming and labor-intensive than more modern methods, we feel that treating the fragile goat curd this way produces a finer textured and flavored cheese.


We think that since our “girls” work hard to produce such wonderful milk, we had better do our utmost to process it into the finest of cheese. To this end we use only the highest quality ingredients, including European cultures and vegetable rennet, and for the herbed cheeses: fresh, hand-pressed garlic, freshly ground peppercorns and our own fresh, organically grown herbs or high quality dried herbs.
