Traditional & Heritage Foods
There was a time when animals we farmed were raised on what was grown locally. This meant that their meat, milk, and eggs developed unique and rich flavors based on where and how they lived. Moxie Ridge Farm & Creamery is dedicated to returning to this tradition and bringing these foods to the communities of Upstate NY and beyond.
Our meat chickens are a non-industrial breed raised free-range on forage, local non-GMO grain, and whey. We use our own adaptation of a French technique originating in Bresse to finish them on cultured milk from the farm creamery. This results in delicate, juicy meat and soft skin that crisps all the way through.
Our goat cheeses are made on-farm with the milk of our growing herd of sassy Alpine and Saanen goats. Cows' milk cheeses are made with milk from Jersey cows picked up fresh from a small family farm from the next town over. The Moxie Ridge obsession with terroir and commitment to hand-milking makes all the difference in these traditional cheeses.
Free Range Eggs
That's right, these eggs can range as free as they like. But so can our laying hens, all of which are named Susan. Our free-range flock's forage-based diet is supplemented with local non-GMO grain, with a protein boost of whey once a week. The Susans are primarily heritage breeds and lay eggs that have become wildly popular with Moxie followers.
