Our cheeses are made from the nutritious and creamy (antibiotic and hormone free) milk of our small herds of cows and goats that roam the pastures eating what they're supposed to eat – grass. Cheeses aged over 60 days are made with raw milk – bigger flavor and very nutritious. Those tender and fresh cheeses aged less than 60 days are made with pasteurized milk. The operative word here is GRASS, however.
Milk from animals that eat what they were designed to eat is nutrient rich, low in cholesterol, high in Omega 3s, and still retains proteins, minerals and vitamins necessary for good health. From the much loved pastured animals to the cheeses lovingly crafted and aged, you are sure to "Taste the Difference a Little Grass Makes".

We also have meat from goats and chickens, and beef from cattle, all raised in the same manner as our dairy animals, thus producing a superior flavor and texture that exceeds most grass fed meats. Our hens are free-ranging little producers of fresh eggs each and every day.

A little more info on our meats:
Beef-- Roaming the pastures in summer and fall, our cattle are grass fed and grass finished; in the winter months we bring in custom blended grass feed and ensure its nutrient content is what our animals need and deserve.
Eggs – Our chickens are occupying the garden for the winter months, they keep the pests under control, the grain for them is from a local family run mill in NY that provides a custom blend for us, they also get to free range for weed seeds and the leftover vegetables from the fall and summer; so needless to say they have a well-rounded diet and plenty of space to roam.
Goat -- This is a must-try meat! Throughout the world it is the most popular meat. In our Chef’s opinion it is “better than lamb!” (milder). We recommend treating it as such, a little grain mustard, garlic, and rosemary on your roast or chops along with salt and pepper, and cook to your liking.
Pork -- We did not raise our pork in 2015, however the local pork sausage we acquired is amazing and some of the best we have had, and are so happy to be able to share. Soon, in 2016, we will be raising our own once again.
