We’re super excited to get in two new local goat cheeses from Caromont Farm in Esmont, Virginia! Caromont is located just 23 miles south of Charlottesville where their core values of sustainable farming start with a commitment to their animals and a strong connection to place.
Gail Hobbs Page is the owner and cheese maker at Caromont Farm. Her cheeses enjoy a local as well as a regional following, and are sold at Specialty Cheese Shops, Farmers Markets, and Fine Restaurants throughout the Southeast. Caromont holds true to the basic farmstead principles of cheese making– they source no outside milk, use no frozen curd, and all cheeses are hand ladled. They continually strive to develop the terroir of Esmont in their cheeses through improving their soil fertility while practicing holistic herd practices.
