OakMoon Farm & Creamery

Old-World-Style Cheeses with Blue Ridge Flair!

About US
OakMoon Creamery is located in the charming hamlet of Bakersville, gateway to magnificent Roan Mountain. We have raised dairy goats (with a brief break) since 1983, and previously used the name Fairlight for the herd. Since 1998, we have been known as OakMoon Farm, and raise American and French alpines, oberhasli, and saanen goats.

The creamery was licensed in 2007 with some products available year-round. The creamery is open seven days per week, with cheese available for sale on the honor system. (Limited availability in winter so call ahead!)

We offer basic cheesemaking and goat husbandry workshops in spring and fall. Typical workshop topics include how to make simple chevre, feta, mozzarella, pressed farmer cheese, fencing and housing dairy goats, kidding and feeding.
