Meet a Supplier: Caprikorn Farms

SONY DSCAlice Orzechowski and Scott Hoyman have been raising award winning Saanen dairy goats for over 30 years. They have won numerous national awards for total milk production, as well as butterfat and protein content.  Last year they had the top three goats in the country for milk production.

Their farm is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where all the goats browse as nature intended.  They provide the highest standard of humane care. Although they have over 150 goats, they each have names and they totally enjoy their distinct personalities.

The fertile Blue Ridge Mountains provide a diet resulting in high quality milk with exceptional flavor – perfect for cheese making.  Their raw goat milk cheese are literally hand made in small batches in the tradition of the best artisanal farmstead cheeses.  Caprikorn is Maryland’s first On-Farm-Home Licensed Goat Cheese Processor.
