Reopening the farm

It has been a difficult spring with unprecedented high rainfall and lingering cold temperatures, but we’re still standing, and we’re finally ready to welcome guests to the farm. There is still standing water in parts of the lawn and much of our pastures, and the signs of spring are slow to reveal themselves, but we know folks are eager to reconnect with the farm and the show-stopping goats. Starting this weekend, we are open Saturdays and Sundays, 11 am to 5 pm each day.

In celebration of the holiday weekend, we'll have our farm store well stocked for you to put together all the fixin's for holiday (Easter, Passover, Ramadan) entertaining--cheese, charcuterie, accompaniments.

NEW in our farm store: AWA-certified, pastured eggs from Joyful Wren Farm in Champaign. These eggs are beautiful on the outside and the inside-perfect for all the eggy dishes you plan to serve this holiday weekend/

You can put together your own gift basket if you like. We'll have build your own cheese & charcuterie boards available to enjoy at the farm.

Inaugural batches of goat milk gelato will be available by the scoop--no pint options until May!

Our famous goat milk hot chocolate will be available for your enjoyment too!

What about baby goats you ask? Yes, indeed, they will be out in their play yard and there is plenty of opportunity for petting, hugging and marveling at their baby goat antics.


If you can't make it to the farm, there are other ways to get your hands on some PFFC cheeses!

For the remaining Saturdays in April (8 am to 12 noon), you can buy our cheeses from our friends at Blue Moon Farm. They have beautiful spring greens and gorgeous carrots that pair perfectly with most of our cheeses. The market is located just inside the south entrance to Lincoln Square Mall in Urbana.

Our online store is always open! You can order for shipping OR for on-farm pick up. Too far away to pick up? You can always order to ship. Our cheeses make the perfect give for so many occasions. You can even treat yourself!


Here's the lineup of cheeses that you can expect to find either at the farm or at the Champaign Urbana Indoor Farmers' Market (with Blue Moon Farm):

  • Fresh chevre: plain, herbs de Provence or cracked pepper

  • Angel Food-mixed milk mini-brie

  • Little Bloom on the Prairie-mixed milk camembert style

  • Black goat-ash ripened bloomy--super ripe and very limited (at the farm only)

  • Fleur de la prairie-stunning bloomy with dried herbs and edible flowers

  • Mixed milk feta in whey brine

  • Goat milk yogurt (farm only)

  • Goat milk kefir (farm only)

  • Raw goat milk (farm only)-quarts and half gallons
