Yellow Springs Farm, a Native Plant Nursery and Artisanal Goat Cheese Dairy, founded by Catherine and Al Renzi, is located in Chester Springs, Pennsylvania. The farm and nursery consists of an historic farmhouse, dairy barn, and springhouse with pond. Originally a dairy farm 150 years ago, we purchased the farm in 2001 protecting it from future development with a conservation easement.
Yellow Springs Farm proudly offers both fresh and aged Artisanal Goat Cheeses, and Goat Milk Yogurt. The most important part of our dairyis the exceptionally good milk our goats produce. We breed and raise Nubian goats, with occasional genetic crosses, carefully selected for their naturally nutrient rich milk. Our herd browses pasture, cleans up invasive plant species in the woodland, and basks in the sun. Our goats also eat local hay, and grains. Al and Catherine Renzi make Yellow Springs Farm cheeses using age-old processes borrowed from both French and Italian traditions. Our original interpretation of these recipes, and inclusion of farm-raised herbs, nuts, and honey make many unique Yellow Springs Farm Goat Cheeses. Each small batch is handmade, and never includes preservatives or anything artificial. We use only vegetable rennet in our cheeses.
