After transplanting to the east coast in 2001 in search of a simple, honest environment for our family, our journey into sustainable agriculture began. We purchased our first goat in 2003 to produce fresh milk for our own consumption. It wasn’t long after, learning that goats thrive in groups, that our own 1 doe turned into a heard of milkers. Ripe every morning with more milk that we could use. It was at that time that with the help of our second-youngest, Megan, that our first batch of chevre was made and named in honor of one of our first does, Lilly. Shortly thereafter, the founder and head fromager, Suzanne, enjoyed a gorgeous cheese called Valencay and set out to make her own; that’s when our cheese began to take shape.
In the spring of 2012 we received our Grade A certification and Food Manufacturing permit and introduced our first cheese at the farmers’ market in nearby Charles Town, WV. Since then we have continued to grow both our product line and our customer base serving markets around the eastern panhandle, northern VA, and Washington DC as well as a number of local shops, restaurants, and caterers.
