Wonderful things are happening in our new 'state-of-the-art' dairy.
Come visit us at our new location! In addition to seeing how we do it... we can help you set up your own small dairy! We can get you started with sheep, goats, equipment and classes.
Where there are sheep and goats providing milk, there must be babies!
Spring time means lambs and baby goats (kids) in abundance!
What a GREAT time to come to the farm for a tour.
During the tour, you will see where those happy, healthy mothers are fed and milked.
Next, the milk is transferred to the Milk Room where it will be bottled or pasteurized, depending on usage.
Final stop, for some of the milk, will be the Cheese Room. Where the rich, creamy sheep milk becomes rich, creamy cheese in a multitude of varieties.
The Dairy and Cheese making Facility
Goat milk has become very popular in the last few years for those with lactose intolerance. It's easy to digest especially for children, infants and elderly. Our goat herd has a majority of Saanens which have the lower calories as well as a mild taste. Our sheep milk has gained quite a growing number of people using it for their infants and toddlers with health issues. It has 2-3 times more protein than goat milk and a rich sweet flavor as well as the ease in digestibility as with goat milk. In 8 ounces of sheep milk, the protein can be 14 grams! Our sheep milk yogurt is sweet and thick and the Kefir has outstanding health benefits. The milk from the Ewes is the 'liquid gold' in cheese making!
We see a growing interest in the dairy aspect of sheep and goats. For our family, we have been making cheese for years for family and friends, but thought it was time to sell to the public. We've started a DHEC approved and licensed Grade A Raw Milk Dairy for Goat and sheep milk as well as a licensed cheese making facility. We have the only licensed sheep milk dairy in all of SC! We use our own milk to make Nationally Award Winning cheeses and dairy products ranging from yogurt, kefir, hard, soft, Ricotta, and spreadable cheeses.
