Farm Practices

Our cheese comes from ruminants managed in an organic, pasture-based system. We believe in the principle of terroir. Milk is a unique reflection of the soil from which ruminants harvest grasses and forages. A herd of Nubian and Alpine goats live on First Light Farm and provide all the goat's milk. Some cheeses also include organic Jersey cow milk from neighbor Brent Tillotson's farm.
