Alice Orzechowski & Scott Hoyman ~ Caprikorn Farms
Alice Orzechowski and Scott Hoyman have been raising award winning Saanen dairy goats for over 30 years. They have won numerous national awards for total milk production, as well as butterfat and protein content. Caprikorn Farms is located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where all our goats browse as nature intended. We provide the highest standard of humane care. Although we have over 150 goats, they each have a name and we totally enjoy their distinct personalities.
The fertile Blue Ridge Mountains provide a diet resulting in high quality milk with exceptional flavor - perfect for cheesemaking. Our raw goat milk cheeses are literally hand made in small batches in the tradition of the best artisanal farmstead cheeses. We are Maryland's first On-Farm-Home Licensed Goat Cheese Processor.
We make Cheddar, Sharp Cheddar, Garlic-n-Chives Cheddar, Jalapeno Cheddar, Gouda, Aged Gouda, fresh and flavored chevres.
Come sample our awesome goat cheeses and visit our petting paddock where your kids can meet and feed our "kids". In addition, you can tour our goat milking facility. During the tour, we will also be selling grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup.
