Join us for a tour of this working goat farm. We will tour the entire farm, learning about the history and how they got started; tour the animals and learn about the herds; learn about husbandry; Dairy barn and how it gets from goat to machine and the pasteurization process; we will see the ice tank and learn about how they keep the milk cold; plus we will see baby goats! We will also get to have a tasting of Chevre goat cheese and possibly meet the Chef.
Drake Family Farms cheeses are both “farmstead” and “artisan”. “Farmstead” means made on the farm with milk exclusively from the farm’s own animals. According to the American Cheese Society, the word “artisan or artisanal” implies that a cheese is produced primarily by hand, in small batches, with particular attention paid to the tradition of the cheese maker’s art, and thus using as little mechanization as possible in the production of the cheese.
The secret to making the best cheese is to use only the highest quality milk. The best quality milk comes from happy healthy goats. Dan Drake is a veterinarian who has been overseeing the health of the Drake Family Farms goat herd for the past 26 years. Dan brought 143 goats from the farm in Utah to start his farm of happy Southern California Goats. All the goats have names and are registered with the American Dairy Goat
Association. We love our goats and give them a very high standard of care. Goats are like dogs with individual personalities and we consider every goat a pet. The herd consists of Nubian, Saanen, Alpine, and Snubian Goats. (Snubians are a hybrid cross between Saanen and Nubians).
