Featured Product: Fern’s Edge Raw Goats Milk

Posted on June 8th, 2010 by Gavin | Posted in Dairy & Eggs

We are excited to announce the addition of Raw Goats Milk from Fern’s Edge Dairy in Lowell!

Here’s a bit about them from the front page of their site:

Fern’s Edge Goat Dairy is a farmstead artisan cheese facility “staffed” by the long-established and award-winning Mt Zion Dairy Goat herd.

Our farm and dairy are nestled at the base of Mt. Zion in the Cascade foothills overlooking beautiful Dexter Lake. We are committed to creating nourishing dairy products that are handmade in small batches, uniquely crafted and locally produced — ensuring quality, freshness and a wonderful taste.

Fern’s Edge uses all organic practices and certified feeds as well as biodynamic methods in managing our animals and in working the land as we strive to foster sustainability and enhance our daily rhythm with the Earth.

Our first cheese offerings are an array of fresh-flavored soft cheeses seasoned with our own farm-raised herbs or off-farm organic ingredients and wild-crafted edibles. We are also working on some raw milk aged cheeses as well as some bloomy and mold-ripened varieties that will be available soon.

We’re pleased to be offering such a high quality local product! Look for us to be bringing in their cheese soon as well!

This is great news for those of us who can’t travel to a local farm to get raw milk. I’m curious how they get around the state laws regarding resale of raw milk. Be sure to tell them to contact realmilk.com to update the listing for Salem.

Hi Shebeeste,
The laws in Oregon prohibit the sale of raw cows milk, but raw sheep and goats milk is permitted. 🙂
