Avalanche Cheese Company was founded to supply the restaurants and shops of the Roaring Fork Valley with beautiful hand crafted goat cheeses. Our product line ranges from pasteurized fresh cheeses to raw milk aged, hard cheeses.We use goat’s milk from our mixed herd of Saanen, Alpine and Nubian goats that live on the 130-acre Farm and Dairy in Paonia, Colorado. For those of you unfamiliar with Paonia, it is an oasis of orchards, family farms and small dairies nestled between McClure Pass and Delta, CO.It is our hope that by raising our animals in a humane way, in a beautiful environment with the freedom to run and graze on our pastures, they will give us delicious milk which we will then turn into delicious cheeses for you, our customer.
Over time we hope to achieve organic status for our Farm and Dairy. We don’t use any pesticides or chemical fertilizers on our fields, and we feed our animals nutritious grains and hay to supplement their pasture feedings. Certified Organic takes time and we are constantly working towards that goal, but in the meantime, you can feel confident that you are getting a hormone and chemical free cheese.
