About this project
At Caromont Farm we're obsessed with one thing: making good cheese. Over the past five years we've made it our business to do just that.
Our farm business started as so many do: with a dream and some sweat. Founder Gail Hobbs-Page along with her husband, Daniel, set out to build a dairy farm at their home with only a few goats and a few acres in the red clay hills of Southern Albemarle County in Virginia. Over five years have passed and business is thriving. We have added two talented cheesemakers to our staff, grown a successful farm intern program, expanded our herd of happy goats to over 60, and customers all through the region and the East Coast are loving our products.
With all these blessings, we find ourselves needing to expand! The most important additions will be in our dairy, where our equipment struggles to keep up with our level of production, and priority number one: we severely need a new cheesemaking vat. Currently we have two cheesemakers working three cheesemaking shifts a day, seven days a week.
With a new vat, we'll be able to cut that back to four or five cheesemaking shifts, as well as open up new styles of cheese for our milk.
With your support, and a shiny new vat, we'll be able to keep providing world-class cheeses made right here in Virginia.
Won't you help us continue to make real, good cheese?
Yes! Just pledge the total value of the items combined (for example; $75 for a t-shirt and cheeseboard) and then send us a message letting us know your intent. We'll add a note to your name in our records and be sure you receive both incentives!
