Flavorista Tracey took me to a wonderful new goat creamery here in Fennville, Michigan –Evergreen Lane Farm and Creamery. Kathy has recently aquired La Mancha goats – a California breed. This male La Mancha recently got his head stuck in a gate and lost one of his horns. I call him Rhino.
Kathy has started producing wonderful artisanal goat cheeses. Right now with her weekly supply of 100 gallons of goat milk she is offering soft goat cheeses and later in the fall she will start with her hard cheeses.
Educated at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo and at the University of Vermont’s Institute for Artisanal Cheese – she is truly becoming a master of the craft. There are 2 interns from WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms)- a website that hooks up people who want to learn about organic farming practices and farmers who are desperately needing the extra hands world wide. If you are in the area you can stop buy and purchase cheese directly from Kathy or go to the Summertime Market on the Blue Star Highway. Try the Pyramid goat – it’s exceptionally good. Thanks for the taking the pictures Tracey!
