Catoctin Creamery

Catoctin Creamery We are a small family owned goat dairy located in Leesburg, VA. We make artisan goat cheese by hand.
(4)

We are a small family owned goat dairy business. We started buying goats in 2014. We built a large barn in 2015 and started buying more goats. In 2016 we built the creamery and we were certified in April 2017. We believe that ensuring small farms are present in our local communities and able to sell locally raised farm products to the community is crucial. We have alpine dairy goats from which we sell goat cheese, conduct cheese making classes and sell goats, as available. We also have chickens and a small garden where we grow the herbs and berries for our cheese. It may surprise many to know that not that long ago Loudoun County, Virginia was a large dairy producing region. In 1950 there was 405 dairy farms in Loudoun County, shipping dairy from Loudoun County into the Washington D.C. area along the Washington & Old Dominion Railway (W&OD). In the recent past this dairy industry has all but disappeared in the county, with the number of dairies in the county going from 405 in 1950 to 76 in 1978 and to only one in 2006. We are hoping to do our small part in bringing dairies back to Loudoun County and starting to ensure that you have the ability to purchase locally made dairy products, not dairy shipped in from out of state.

It was an exciting day on the farm. We woke to one Mom giving birth to twins. Another pregnant mom was originally helping clean one of the babies in the picture. Then she went into labor herself and had 2 babies of her own. Wonderful new babies ❀️

Scary in the dark.. Yep it’s that time of year for us. Breading season. This time of year we put guys with the girls for periods of time. Last night due to overseen circumstances we tried to take the boys away from the girls after dark. Just a note for everyone out there β€” boys don’t like leaving the girls.. and in the dark with horns.. it was an experience. Everyone is fine, but I do not recommend it

Best friends. Here are two of our adult ladies sleeping together. I love how they kinda form a heart. We have video that runs to the house so that we can keep on eye on things during birthing time (which is the beginning of March) but it runs all the time. As a result of the video I can watch them at night. They are such social amazing animals. They have their best friends who they sleep with every night just like this. Such good friends. I so adore them ❀️❀️

According to my boyfriend, the herb goat cheese in scrambled eggs is delicious. I'll be stopping by One Loudoun for the honey goat cheese!
