Lovers Retreat Cheeses

Lovers Retreat Dairy makes farmstead goat cheese with attention to quality.  Our goats graze on our pesticide and herbicide free pastures.  They receive no antibiotics or hormones. The result is rich cheese with a very mild flavor due to the careful milk handling process.  We use vegetable rennet in all our cheeses.  Please see our instructions on caring for cheeses to make the most of your purchase.

Chevre - sold in 4 oz. rounds, the texture is firm but smooth, rich, and creamy - a true delicacy that begs for a warm, crusty French baguette and a glass of robust red wine. We offer it in a variety of flavors --

Plain - outstanding mild flavor makes this cheese undeniably good
Herb -
a savory blend of dried herbs commonly used in southern France including Savory, Rosemary, Basil, Marjoram and Wild Thyme


Fromage Blanc - sold in 6 oz. containers, its soft, creamy texture is similar to cream cheese to make it very spreadable - ready for a hearty cracker or bagel.  We offer it in a variety of flavors depending on when fresh herbs are in season.


Fine Farmstead Cheeses Provided by "Us Goats"



Garlic/Chive - garden fresh chives and minced garlic blended to make a wonderful dip or to spice up favorite dishes

Tomato/Basil - sun dried tomatoes, fresh basil and garlic is perfect with fresh veggies or as a seasoning with pasta and salads
Chipotle - a spicy flavor with a smoky finish adds a zip to baked potatoes, fish or meat


Feta - sold in 4 oz. & 8 oz. containers, which when young is moist with an almost cheddar like consistency.  After several weeks, it will gradually become drier and more crumbly for use in salads.  

Classic - Great eaten out of hand or crumbled on salads. (2nd place in 2008 ADGA Cheese Competition)
Sun Dried Tomato and Basil - Classic feta using local sun dried tomatoes and fresh basil when in season. 
1st place in 2008 ADGA Cheese Competition)


Bloomy Rind - sold in 4 oz. rounds, this is a truly surface-ripened cheese like those produced in the French countryside.  The flavor and texture changes as the cheese ages. A great pairing with red wine.
