About Us
Our passion has been the production of the some the highest quality goat cheeses available anywhere. We’ve watched domestic cheese production increase in both quantity and quality and are excited about the prospects for the future of the industry. Nevertheless, too few producers are able to avoid the loss in quality that comes from growth and the use of purchased milk, something that we never use here.

As a farmstead and woman-owned operation, we use only the milk from our own herd of goats. Fresh milk is pumped from one room to the next, never trucked from location to location. Everything that goes into the making of our cheeses happens here and only here, a difference that can be seen and tasted in each of our cheeses. Whether you’re a current or prospective customer, please take some time to learn more about our operation and our cheeses. Thank you, and we hope you enjoy our cheeses as much as we enjoy making them.

We have approximately 1,000 dairy goats, each with a distinctive personality.

Holly Grove Farms is one of the largest farmstead and woman-owned goat dairies in the United States. We raise milking goats and make cheese from their milk on the farm. This way, we manage every aspect of the outstanding taste of our cheeses.

Our herd of Alpines, Saanens, and Toggenburg are separated by age. The mature goats are milked twice a day, at 6am and 4:30pm. Each goat will produce three-quarter of a gallon of milk a day. That amount of milk makes around one pound of cheese.
