Turkeyfoot Creek Creamery Uses Own Goats for Cheese
Besides making three different types of goat cheese, Turkeyfoot Creek Creamery has something else going for it. They are hardcore cheesemakers, but they also take care of their own goats on the farm.
According to owner Del Burkholder, the farm near Wauseon is the only one in northwest Ohio to make goat cheese from its own goats. And it is one of only four or five in the whole state to do so.
The creamery will have its official grand opening at noon July 17, though it has been in business since March. It makes cheese in three ways: creamy chevre, firm and flavorful Gouda, and chewy curds, which are eaten deep fried or just plain as a snack.
