At Lost Peacock Creamery the goats have wings, the pigs have polka dots, and the trees hug us back. Everyone has a place at our table. And no, we don’t milk the peacocks. Rachel runs the farm of 36 goat milks and Matthew makes the cheese. No antibiotics or growth hormones, just good clean air and on-farm breeding.
Lost Peacock Creamery is run by one strong willed, outrageously over-the top, everything looks better in pink woman; one very opinionated, get out of her way she’ll show you how it’s done, 5 year old; one tough as nails (you’ve got to be with an older sister like him), tiny little mister; and one incredibly kind, patient and really really ridiculously good looking man. It is a labor of love filled with our blood, sweat, and tears (don’t worry, we keep all that out of the cheese).
As a Grade A Goat Dairy we are conscious of how our presence impacts the environment and we’re proud to be a Thurston County Green Business. We milk 36 goats once a day and make cheese every other day. Our power comes from alternative energy sources and we utilize our whey by-products to feed our pigs.
We are committed to creating an environment that sustains us without sacrificing the land. We are a certified Animal Welfare Approved farm. In Europe, the term “High Farming” is used to reference the perfect balance between plants and animals. Animals enrich the soil, the soil produces plants, the plants feed the animals. As lofty as it may sound, we aspire to succeed at “High Farming” and, in turn, nourish the people.
Our farm has made a conscious decision to raise animals with respect and dignity. We believe by giving animals a free and protected environment they will grow happy and healthy, without the constant bevy of antibiotics, hormones and fillers, factory farms are forced to use. We also believe when animals are raised in fresh air and sunshine (or in our case, rainshine) their milk, meat and eggs are healthier for us.
We specialize in fresh and aged goat cheese. Our farm is open to the public by appointment, for special events and open farm days. Also, goat yoga! Occasionally we have weaner pigs and laying hens for sale. Please e-mail us for availability: firstname.lastname@example.org.
