Yellow Springs Farm LLC is located in Chester Springs, Chester County, PA. The eight-acre farm and nursery consists of an historic farmhouse, dairy barn, a springhouse with pond. Originally a dairy farm 150 years ago, the farm was purchased in 2001 protecting it from future development with a conservation easement. On the farm, owners Catherine and Al Renzi make fresh and aged goat-milk cheeses in addition to operating a native plant nursery. The couple follows the highest standards for quality and sustainability to breed and raise Nubian dairy goats carefully selected for their naturally nutrient-rich milk. The herd browses pasture, cleans up invasive plant species in the woodland, basks in the sun and eats local hay and grains.
Al and Catherine follow age-old processes borrowed from both French and Italian traditions to make Yellow Springs Farm Cheese. Each small batch is handmade and never includes preservatives or anything artificial. The farm offers fresh, pasteurized milk cheeses, and exclusive raw milk cheeses aged 60 days or more. Given the cheese makers’ inclusion of farm-raised herbs, nuts and honey, you’ll find there’s always a new, unique cheese to try.
Yellow Springs Farm also produces goat milk caramel sauces, and award-winning goat milk yogurts in cups and quarts.
Yellow Springs Farm is a member of the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture and the Pennsylvania Farmstead & Artisan Cheese Alliance.
