Here on the farm we love fresh Chèvre. In our first year of opening the creamery, fresh Chèvre was all we made.
Chèvre has quick turnaround time from being in the udder to being on your plate - less than one week to be exact! We work hard to have healthy, happy goats that in turn give us extremely high quality milk. Our milk quality is what makes our fresh Chèvre stand out from the rest.
Although fresh Chèvre is delicious on its own, over the years we have curated different flavors that we make at home and love to share with friends and family. A few of our favorite flavor additions include chives, pepper and edible flowers. Read on to get our simple recipes to take your next container of fresh Chèvre to the next level.
Fresh Chèvre is good enough to eat straight from the container with a spoon - we don't judge! Michelle and Jack Rudolph, Stepladder Creamery owners, love Chèvre paired with Rustic Bakery crackers, pickled vegetables, cured meats, and Lady of the Sunshines Rosé
