Great Lakes Goat Dairy ON
Canada

We have been dairy goat farming in the heart of the Great Lakes in Ontario, Canada for 11 years. We do it because we value family farming and take pride in providing the market's best firm goat cheese.

People love our cheese for it's incredible fresh taste and great texture... all of which can be traced back to our number one ingredient, 100% Canadian farmstead goat's milk.

In 2003, Anthony and Marj Sjaarda began dairy goat farming.

 Anthony had spent his life in dairy milking cows, and Marj had grown up working on her family farm. After a number of years the couple's hard work and dedication was showing as their caprine farm was budding...

    In 2010 they won Young Farmers awards and had grown their operation to 750 milking goats and over 1,350 total
    In 2011 the farm won the Forage Master of the Year award for all of Ontario for producing quality feed

Creating their own cheese products began in 2008 as a labor of love. Marj immersed herself in the art of cheese making, and Anthony continued in his passion for working with the goats to produce the highest quality, best tasting goat milk possible.

We are proud that all of the milk in our cheese comes 100% from our own farmstead. We manage all the details from how we treat our animals and what we give, and we manage it all from seed to feed. All of our feed is 100% NON-GMO and we use no herbicides or pesticides.
