WELCOME TO GOAT RODEO FARM & DAIRY

IT STARTED, AS MOST GOOD STORIES DO, WITH A GOAT.

And before you know it, there was another goat. and then another.

Then, with all those goats, it quickly became about milk. And then, happily cheese. We became students of cheese and met wonderful, generous cheesemakers across the country. The more we learned, the more we wanted to learn.

That’s when it became clear that we’d found a calling. And began work on our creamery. By the time the creamery was completed, we had a happy herd of goats and some cheery neighboring cows all delighted to provide what would become the fruits of our labors. Goat Rodeo Cheeses.

From fresh chèvre to interesting aged cheeses, we’re creating some of the region’s finest cheeses, from goat milk, cow milk, and a delicious blend of both.

OUR FARM

Goat Rodeo Farm & Dairy is a 130 acre family owned farm located near Pittsburgh Pa in northern Allegheny County.

We have a herd of more than 100 alpine and nubian dairy goats and bring in cow’s milk from le-ara farms to make a variety of fresh and aged cheeses using traditional techniques for artisan cheese production.
