White Whale Farm & Pugs Leap Cheese is a small goat dairy and creamery. All of our farmstead artisan cheese is made by hand onsite. Our 120 happy and healthy goats provide all the milk for our cheese. By using only our own goats’ milk we are able to control the process and quality from start to finish, allowing us to provide a premium, hand crafted cheese. Our dairy and creamery are housed in a beautiful barn that was built in 1867.
The goats are protected by Samson and Cosette, our Anatolian Shepherds, who we have named two of our cheeses after. We also have some pigs and about 500 chickens who help us keep the farm clean by eating our scraps and extra whey from cheese making. We recently have added pastured-raised eggs to our offerings. We hope you enjoy Pugs Leap Cheese as much as we enjoy creating it!
