Ziegenwald Dairy is owned and operated by John and Andrea Woodworth. Our Farm is located on Possum Creek, near Gate City, in Scott Co. Virginia. We relocated to this area in December of 1993 and bought our first goats in spring of ’94. In 2008 we attained our Grade A Dairy license which allows us to process milk, produce and sell homestead cheese. Our Cheese is made from the milk of only our own animals. We do not use hormones or antibiotics to increase milk production. We are the oldest established Grade A goat milk dairy in southwest Virginia.
We produce Chevre which is sold either plain or with added natural flavors. There is usually also some Colby style cheese available as well as mozzarella. In 2011 Feta was added to our list of farmstead cheeses. Our Camembert is a seasonal product sold at farmers markets or as special order only due to short shelf life. As of 2017 we also make a Swiss style cheese that we call Appalachian Lace. We do not add chemical preservatives or artificial color to any of our products.
You can visit us on Facebook under Ziegenwald Dairy or watch an episode of ‘French Magnolia Cooks’ on Youtube or PBS which features our dairy and cheese.
