Sunflower Farm Creamery

Nigerian Dwarf Dairy

Welcome to Sunflower Farm - where all the romance of farm life is still very much a reality. Looking for delicious local cheese made in small daily batches? You have come to the right place. May-October, our feta, chevre, yogurt, caramels, fudge and cajeta are available Fri-Sun 10:30-5 in our self serve farm shop. Come check out what is available, then relax a bit and watch the goats grazing in the field.

We giggle when folks visiting ask us if all the goats have names. Not only do they all have names, they all have distinct calls we know even from the kitchen, they each have preferences for their favorite treats, and places they most love to be scratched. In the milkroom, each mama has their own approach to our time together: Matilda likes to be milked without her head closed in to the head gate. GoGo insists that she be milked one side at a time. After Rosemary is milked, she waits on the milk stand for a few minutes of love before she is ready to hop down and go about her day. And Elsie looks right at our kitchen window and calls us to the barn each morning while we are getting our coffee brewed.

There are lots of hot words in the sustainable food movement. Some mean very different things depending on who is using them and for what purpose, but for us, “local” dairy products are unique because each bite is intimately connected to the way the animals at our farm live. Even a town over, the goats are eating different grass, enjoying a different breeze, their milk is not from Stella and Fern and Cinnamon. We find great joy in sharing our lovely goats with visitors so that when they eat our chèvre or feta or yogurt or caramels, they taste even better because they are remembering a sunny summer day in the field with our herd. Hopefully you can taste the love.

Looking for a fresh way to spend a Sunday? Come have a tasty and memorable afternoon learning how to make cheese at Sunflower Farm Creamery with other fun adults! 

The cost is $60. a person. We will go over the process for chevre and feta, make a quick Farmer's cheese, and mix up some chevre of your own design for you to take home. (Cool ingredient ideas or edible decorations? Bring them along...but we'll have lots here.) You'll leave with lots of treats, directions and the ability to make cheese at home. If you like, you can help out with evening milking (and goat snuggling) before heading home for supper. 

We will not collect payment (cash or check) until the day of the class, but please make every effort to come if you have signed up as we start preparing in the days before for however many folks are registered.
