Welcome to Hickory Nut Farm
Goat Milk Cheese, Soap and a Whole Lot More...
The Art of the Artisanal Method
Life changes can be dramatic, exciting and fulfilling. One day, we are husband
and wife architects and now we are goat farmers.  Our existence is
uncomplicated, busy, fun and peaceful, with a new sense of appreciation for
God's creativity. The produce of His earth, wonderfully interesting and
entertaining, yields animals with all kinds of color and temperament. The
changing seasons with varieties of weather make the life of farming a never
boring, always stimulating,and frequently rewarding way of life.
 

GOAT MILK SOAP

Our soaps are made the farmstead way by hand, with love from all
natural ingredients - our Ladies milk, coconut, palm, canola and olive
oils.  Exfoliates, colorants, clays and scents may be added to further your
special needs soap. Interesting shapes, colors and scented soaps reflect
the seasons, holidays, special occasions,or simply because we find them
to be just plain fun.  We offer  special custom orders for your party
favors, wedding favors or family preferences. Please allow two months
for your custom orders as we cure soaps for at least a month. No soap
leaves Hickory Nut Farm until the prefect blend is selected for you.
Our goat milk cheeses are made from the ground up, literally.  The hay and
grains that feed our goats are selected and blended according to our
standards and experience,  Water for our animals is clear and cool, out of
Our Ladies are treated with love and respect, and they reward us with the
product of their bodies. As a consequence of good treatment and careful
feeding, their milk has excellent nutritional value, producing varied textures
and subtle flavor profiles; just what the meaning of the word
artisanal is all
about.
The hand crafting of our goat milk cheese, soap and yo-goat -gurt  is one of careful and continual
exploring of ingredient combinations and methods  of mixing curing, and aging of our products. The idea
for a new recipe of cheese  will not be revealed as successful for at least two months - the time from
culturing to sufficient maturity.  Cutting open a wheel to see what we have provides a new culinary
experience to excite the senses. Along the way there is hope, confidence, expectation, laughter, shrugs
and disappointment.  And there is always tomorrow ...
After careful blending of the milk,cultures, and vegetable rennet the cheese is
pressed into rounds and then they are carried to hibernated underground in
our cheese cave for at least two months. This underground environment  
provides a steady temperature and humidity for the natural aging process with
minimal damages to God's earth. We utilize God's resource of ground to
cultivate a cheese rich in taste. Each batch of cheese is documented for
weather, temperature, changes of ingredients, methods, and the mood of the
barn. All of these qualities are what make the character of Hickory Nut Farm
cheese unique and special.
