Dancing Goat Creamery is michigan's leading producer of artisanal goat and cow milk cheeses.
Dancing Goat Creamery is owned and directed by the Ferris family since April 2018. Purchased from Veronica who worked for Dancing Goat founder Barbara Jenness as a cheesemaker for several years before taking over in 2011. Dancing Goat makes the same great quality goat and cow milk cheeses as always, focusing on unique, hand-made, small batch, artisanal cheese products using fresh milk from local farms.
Our goat milk is sourced from Brookwood Farm. The mostly Nubian breed of goat is fed non-GMO feed raised right on that farm. We source our organically certified cow milk from Grassfields Farm.
Lubbers Family Farm, located just west of Grand Rapids, Michigan, has been home to Dancing Goat Creamery since the spring of 2013. Populated by ducks, geese, an alternately lazy and exuberant dog, cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, and all the rest, Lubbers makes for the ideal pastoral setting for our creamery.
We give all our whey, expelled from the curds in the cheese-making process, to our cattle and donate it to youth for their pigs!
Lubbers, as well as Little Rooster Bakery, also located on the farm, share in our emphasis on sustainability and good, honest food.
Dancing Goat has received the Slow Food Snail of Approval, in recognition of our contribution to the quality, authenticity and sustainability of the food supply of the West Michigan region.
Our cheese is widely available for purchase throughout the greater Grand Rapids area and is featured on the menus of numerous outstanding West Michigan restaurants.
