About Us / Lovers Retreat Farm & Dairy History: This farm produces Animal Welfare Approved goat cheese. \n\nLovers Retreat Farm and licensed Grade A Dairy is located on the historic Middle Peninsula of eastern Virginia. Started as a homestead in 1984, the farm has evolved to include a dairy facility for goats—scattered across the pastures they roam nibbling on grass free of pesticides and herbicides. At Lovers Retreat Farm owner Cynthia Wilson strongly believes that the only way to produce quality farmstead goat cheese is to have happy, healthy goats. She monitors their health daily, keeping detailed records as they are milked. The result is quality artisanal cheeses with exceptional flavor guaranteed by using only the fresh hormone and antibiotic-free milk from the herd. These high standards have enabled Cynthia to win several awards for her cheeses and achieve the high animal welfare requirements set by Animal Welfare Approved.
