Old Town Alexandria today. First market of the season 😀
We are a small family owned goat dairy located in Leesburg, VA. We make artisan goat cheese by hand. 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.

Hi there. Sorry we have not posted in awhile. We have cheese and are trying to figure out all the new ways to get it to folks. We are working on it so stay tuned on that. I will post as we figure it out. In the meantime I thought folks may appreciate a little video of me and the babies taking an afternoon nap a little bit ago.. I so love every moment I get to spend time with the babies.
Taking advantage of this beautiful weather to build a gate, stain some boards for the gate and mend some fencing 😀 Whenever I stain fencing I can help but think of Karate Kid 😂

What a beautiful day it was. The babies and I enjoyed some much needed play time, with babies jumping on rocks and nibbling on green stuff and me cuddling with them 😀 #babygoats #loudouncounty #goatcheese
Spending time with the babies exploring the property and playing is always the highlight of my day ❤️ #goatcheese #babygoats #loudouncountyva #loudounfarms #dairygoat
Baby play time on the rocks this morning ❤️ #babygoats #goatdairy #goatcheese #loudounfarms #loudouncountyfarms
Some of the babies out playing on a down tree on the property. We keep it because it makes a nice baby jungle gym every year. Love baby play time ❤️ @babygoats @goatdairy @catoctincreamery
One of our adorable babies. ❤️❤️
The babies were out today running all around the property. They discovered a dog toy. Very intriguing they thought. How fun 😀 #babygoats #loudounfarms #catoctincreamery
Enjoying some baby goat time 😀
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 ❤️
Our baby snuggle puddle ❤️ Goats love snuggling up together, especially the babies. Even our adult ladies snuggle up with a friend at night ❤️ Love goats ❤️❤️
More baby bottle feeding. We do this four times a day right now. They are so adorable ❤️❤️❤️
Babies getting bottle fed. Love baby goats ❤️
I love all the spring flowers around the farm. How pretty 😀
First time feeding a baby goat . Little baby and her were both happy 😀
This is how we wake up our house guests during kidding season, if they sleep in 😀
This is Eliza. Our fourth doe this kidding season. Welcome to the world cutie.
Taking a walk on the property the other day and found this huge tree covered in this fungus. Just thought it was so pretty.
