Baetje Farms, pronounced “Bay-G”, began when co-founders Steve and Veronica Baetje bought their first goat just over 20 years ago. As a hobby, they sought out the best way to make French inspired “Pure Artisan Farmstead” goat cheeses. Since then, Baetje Farms have won more than 70 national and international awards for their cheese and is distributed throughout the Unites States.
When you visit, be sure to meet our very happy goats out enjoying their pastures. They receive an unlimited supply of filtered spring water from spring fed creeks. They receive organic teas, organic mineral supplements, locally grown alfalfa and are fed a natural antibiotic free grain. Happy and healthy goats produce great milk, which helps our cheesemakers make great cheese!
