Fodor's Review

Expect to be greeted by white free-roaming Saanen goats grazing happily in luscious green pastures when you visit this family owned-and-run cheesery. In the Swiss-chalet-style tasting room, you can sample a range of goat cheeses including chevin—similar to a cream cheese but a little crumblier—and a mild blue cheese, and learn about the cheese-making practices that Fran Isaac and her family have been following here for more than two decades. Kids love the insinyani cheese, which is also great as pizza topping. If you're here between August and May, you can watch the daily goat milking between 3:0 and 4:30 pm.
