Moxie Ridge Cheeses
Every Moxie Ridge cheese is handmade by cheesemaker Lee Hennessy in small batches in the on-farm creamery.
excellent cheese starts with excellent milk
Moxie Ridge goat cheeses are made from milk from a sassy little herd of pastured Alpine goats that are hand-milked by Lee 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 10 miles of the farm, which establishes a unique sense of terroir in each cheese.
As a cheesemaker, Lee considers the work farming on a microscopic level. They work with classic and native cultures using traditional techniques to draw out a true expression of Moxie Ridge in each cheese produced in the on-farm creamery.
