About Our Beloved Goats
We specialize in artisan goat cheese made from the milk of our Nigerian Dwarf and Anglo-Nubian goats. In adding to the existing flock that we acquired with the property, we chose these breeds because of their high tolerance to the brutal Texas heat. Additionally, Anglo-Nubians produce milk that is high in milk-fat, making it ideal for making cheese. In addition to loving children, our miniature Nigerian Dwarfs produce surprisingly generous amounts of milk so we have a steady and abundant supply. It takes anywhere from one to two gallons of milk to produce one pound of our delicious goat cheese.
People are sometimes surprised at the versatility of goat milk in cheese production. Like cow milk, goat milk can be used to make any number of cheeses including Brie, Blue, Cheddar, Gouda, and more. We started with Feta, and now have Cheddar and Chevre as well. We’ve found that chevre is the most versatile for mixing in additional ingredients. A couple of years ago, we planted a huge herb garden on the property, and have started adding herb encrusted chevre varieties to our list of cheeses.
We love picking fresh greens and veggies from our backyard garden and tossing up a salad with our fresh feta sprinkled on top. Feta is also a family favorite on pizzas.
Cheddar goes well on just about anything, from a cheese board to a grilled cheese sandwich.
Chevre is soft, and spreads well on crackers, so it’s a crowd pleaser at parties and family gatherings. We especially love our number of herb encrusted varieties that make this delightful cheese even more mouth-watering.
Rosemary and Red Chili Chevre
For a kick of flavor and spice, try our rosemary and red chili chevre.
Thyme and Lemon Chevre
Citrusy and fresh, our thyme and lemon chevre is decidedly a crowd favorite, and goes well spread on freshly backed French bread.
Texas Wildflower Honey and Lavender Chevre
Texas is known for its honey production, and this chevre comes drizzled with the golden good stuff. The delicate sweetness of this cheese is perfect for a spring or summer day.
