Moxie Ridge Cheeses
Every Moxie Ridge cheese is handmade by cheesemaker Leah Hennessy in small batches in the on-farm creamery.
excellent cheese starts with excellent milk
Our fresh and fresh-ripened goat cheeses are made from milk from our little herd of pastured Alpine goats that are hand-milked by Leah twice a day. The Moxie herd is raised on pasture during the grazing seasons and local hay in the Winter and are fed a local non-GMO grain. All their food comes from within 5 miles of the farm, which establishes a unique sense of terroir found in the cheeses of Moxie Ridge.
We source our milk for our wildly popular Bulgarian-style Feta from CB Dairy, a local goat dairy with an eclectic mix of dairy breeds including LaManchas and Nubians which results in a richer fat content than the Alpine breed normally produces.
Our cow milk comes from a neighboring farm's beautiful Guernsey herd, just up the road from Moxie Ridge. Guernsey milk is rich in butterfat and carotenoids which contribute to beautiful golden color of the milk.
