Inspiration for our dairy came from a trip to the historic Carl Sandburg Farm in Flat Rock, NC. Two subsequent trips to goat dairies in France provided more information. This traditional approach is simple and practical, with a focus on the dairy doe.
Our contemporary dairy building was designed and built by local architect Jesse Plaster, and houses the milking parlor and cheese room, as well as laundry, lobby and sheltered loafing area for the goats. The dairy makes use of natural daylight and passive ventilation in a regional agricultural form.
Our handmade farmstead goat cheeses are sold at farmers' markets in Boone, Blowing Rock and Hickory, and at Ericks Cheese & Wine Shop in Banner Elk as well as at Hickory Wine Shop in Hickory and at Stick Boy Bread Company in Boone. They are also enjoyed at restaurants in Blowing Rock, Boone, Hickory and Lenoir.
