How Does Goat Cheese Taste?
I’ve always been a huge fan of cheese, all cheese. However, when we started raising dairy goats, goat cheese quickly moved to the top of the list.
Goat cheese is commonly described as having a mild, earthy, buttery but tart flavor. The flavors will deepen as the cheese ripens making the tartness sharper and earthiness more pronounced. Goat cheese is often sold covered in herbs or peppers for an added layer of flavors.

Farm To Table
Do you feel the desire to get closer to your food source and want to be more self-sufficient? You’re not alone.
Not only did we want to start gardening and grow our own fruits, vegetables, and herbs, but we wanted to raise our own dairy as well.
Knowing we didn’t have enough land to raise dairy cows, we started raising the smallest breed of dairy goats, the Nigerian Dwarf Goats.
Nigerian Dwarf Goats are the ideal dairy animal for people who don’t have a lot of land or for those that don’t have the ability to handle large livestock.
Not to mention, their dairy is superb and makes wonderful goat cheese!
