Drake Family Farms cheeses (fresh chèvre and aged raw goat cheese) are “farmstead” (i.e. made on the farm with milk exclusively from the farm’s own animals).
Dan Drake is a veterinarian who has been overseeing the health of the Drake Family Farms goat herd for the past 26 years. Dan brought 143 goats from the farm in Utah to start his farm of Southern California goats. All the goats have names and are registered with the American Dairy Goat Association. Each have individual personalities and are considered pets. The herd consists of Nubian, Saanen, Alpine, and Snubian Goats. (Snubians are a hybrid cross between Saanen and Nubians).
