We began handcrafting cheese in October of 2011. Three years in the making, we set out with a simple mission: turn high quality single-origin goat milk into delicious cheese. The creamery resides on the farm adjacent to the dairy in Molalla, OR, which allows us to source the freshest possible milk for our cheeses and goat milk products. The beloved goats freely roam in the pasture just outside the creamery window, best view ever! By focusing on creating smooth, fresh chèvre in a variety of unique flavors, we hope to make goat cheese appealing to all.
Portland Creamery sources milk from an exceptional private herd of dairy goats comprised of three breeds: Saanen, Alpine, and LaMancha. The herd was started in 1962 and has been managed by a single family throughout its existence. The goats have been awarded numerous titles including 4 National Champions, as well as National Premier Breeder and Performance awards. The herd management carefully maintains the goats on the best quality feed and pasture and focuses on breeding incredibly healthy goats, which produce the highest quality milk.
