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.

Tangy and salty, this fresh cheese is more delicate in texture than a Greek feta. Made with 100% goats' milk and packed in a whey brine, our Bulgarian-style Feta is a customer favorite.

Valencia

A take on the traditional French Valençay goat cheese, this pyramid-shaped dual-rind cheese is a delicate showstopper.  Valencia features a delicate earthiness with snow-white interior and a dramatic liquid cream line that enhances over time.
