Cheeses

Great Gray

A complex cheese with a Brie-like outer shell and a hint of mushroom. With a little bit of age it is more like a Camblue. Wonderful when paired with red meat!
This is our "signature cheese".

Monstasio

A fresh, Italian classic with a smooth texture and a slightly nutty flavour.

Feta

A smooth goat cheese in a lightly salted brine. Creamy, rich and not too salty. 

Peppered Goat

A "mozzarella like" texture, with mixed peppercorns, giving a gentle infusion of pepper taste. 

Chevre

A very fresh French cheese. Wonderful for spreading, mixing, and in any recipe. 

Farmhouse Cheddar

Though not a true cheddar, a perfect table cheese for every farmhouse. Buttery and mild.

Soaps and Lotions

For our soaps we use:

Coconut Oil- creates lots of glycerin, makes big bubbly lather, and is very stable.

Olive Oil- has natural antioxidants and gives us a creamy lather.

Vegetable lard- makes a white, stately bar that is firm and also creates lather.

Goat’s Milk- (instead of water) provides a bar rich in vitamins, minerals, and alpha hydroxyl. This helps break down the adhesion of skin cells.

Essential Oils- to provide a pleasant fragrance and other health benefits

The key ingredient in soap from Early Dawn Farm is the Milk from our Goats. Using milk instead of water for making soap changes the rules, slightly. Adding lye to milk creates a horrid smelling, burnt orange mess. Instead, the lye must be added very slowly to cold milk. To do this, we freeze the milk prior to making soap. This helps emulsify the fat particles in the milk and slows the process, allowing the reaction to happen without spoiling the milk.
