Located in the hills of Randolph county in North Carolina, the original farm and buildings at Goat Lady Dairy date back over 200 years. The current owners acquired the farm in 1983 and began restoring and renovating the buildings. They have been developing the business into a vertically integrated and diversified farm ever since.
The herd of goats on the property provide the milk for cheesemaking and they are rotationally grazed, also receiving supplements of grain by-products, pro-biotics and hay.
Goat Lady Dairy produces several varieties of goat's milk cheese.
Sandy Creek is a soft ripened goat's milk cheese with a horizontal line of ash running through the middle of the cheese.The texture is soft and delicate, becoming almost runny just under the rind as the cheese ages.
Flavors are of grass and hay, with a citrus, lemony tang and earthy notes of mushrooms.
