We are proud to say that we have partnered with Yellow Springs Farm of Chester County, Pa. and weare the exclusive retailer for their locally produced artisan goat cheeses. These goat cheeses are fantastic!

Here is a bit about the farm and the people behind the fabulous artisan cheese.

Farm Background:

Yellow Springs Farm Native Plant Nursery and Artisanal Goat Cheese Dairy, founded by Catherine and Al Renzi, is located in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania. The farm and nursery consists of an historic farmhouse, dairy barn, a springhouse with pond on 8 acres of land. Originally a dairy farm 150 years ago, we purchased the farm in 2001 protecting it from future development with a conservation easement.

Yellow Springs Farm proudly offers both fresh and aged Artisanal Goat Cheeses. The most important part of our cheeses is the exceptionally good milk our goats produce. They breed and raise Nubian goats, with occasional genetic crosses, carefully selected for their naturally nutrient rich milk. Their herd browses pasture, cleans up invasive plant species in the woodland, and basks in the sun. The goats also eat local hay, and organic grains. Al and Catherine Renzi make Yellow Springs Farm cheeses using age-old processes borrowed from both French and Italian traditions. Their original interpretation of these recipes, and inclusion of farm-raised herbs, nuts, and honey make many unique Yellow Springs Farm Goat Cheeses. Each small batch is handmade, and never includes preservatives or anything artificial. They offer both fresh, pasteurized milk cheeses, and exclusive raw milk cheeses aged 60 days or more. All Yellow Springs Farm cheeses are made with sea salt given their passion for high quality ingredients, and the fact that they only use vegetable rennet so vegetarians may enjoy the cheeses with no guilt. These artisans love to select palette-pleasing trends to pair with local, fresh foods. There is always a new cheese to try!
