Amazing Acres Goat Dairy

Amazing Acres Goat Dairy, located in northern Chester county, produces small batch goat cheeses for markets and restaurants in Southeast Pennsylvania. Owned and operated by Lynne and Will Reid, Amazing Acres creates a variety of fresh, flavored chevres and several soft, bloomy rind cheeses.

The health and well-being of their small Nubian herd is of foremost importance to the Reid’s. They allow the newborn kids to stay with their mothers much longer than most other dairies. Though this practice reduces overall milk production, it is less stressful on the goats. Healthy, happy goats produce quality milk and quality milk yields delicious cheese.

You can order Amazing Acres cheeses via phone or email. Visits to the farm by appointment only, please.

Our Cheese Varieties

 This fresh-aged cheese has an ivory-colored curd surrounded by a bloomy white rind and is soft, but semi-firm in texture. When this cheese is young, it provides a somewhat mild flavor that becomes sharper as it matures. As it ages, its texture becomes drier. The center is dense and claylike, with the crumb dissolving on the tongue, while the section near the rind is almost creamy and can be gooey at room temperature. It is a good cheese for salads or for snacking with hearty breads, crackers and grapes.
Sea Smoke
This is a bloomy rind fresh cheese layered with ash (activated charcoal – food grade). The ash works with the bloomy rind to create a distinctive flavor.
 Pumpkin Spice Chèvre
Made with organic pumpkin and spices, this is perfect for the winter holidays. Serve on crackers for an appetizer, spread on graham crackers, or use in cheesecake.
Banon
Banon is a pasteurized cheese made from goat’s milk and is circular in shape, around 3” in diameter and 1” in height, and weighing around 3.5 ounces. Amazing Acres Goat Dairy makes it as a Crottin that is wrapped in grape leaves, soaked in French brandy, and tied with raffia.
Crottin
Crottin is the most famous goat cheese of the many varieties produced in the Loire Valley, France. This cheese is the fame of the small village of Chavignol, France. Crottin de Chavignol offers a subtle and slightly nutty flavor. In its youth, this cheese’s dough is solid and compact with a white rind.  As it ripens, the dough becomes crumbly and the mold on the rind matures into a bluish color.
Fresh Fromagina
Made from 100 percent fresh pasteurized goat’s milk. Use Amazing Acres Goat Dairy’s Fresh Fromagina Cheese as you would a ricotta cheese. Use it in savory dips and spreads by adding fresh herbs, dried onion soup mix, chicken or smoked salmon. You can also add a bit of honey or fruit for a flavorful dessert or use in your favorite cheesecake recipe.
 Amazing Acres Chèvre
Plain fresh cheese with a consistency of cream cheese, with a tangy, mild bite.
Herbs de Provence Chèvre
The herbs include rosemary, thyme, savory, fennel seed, basil, lavender and marjoram. This will look beautiful on your table served with grapes and plain crackers. Also tastes excellent in a warm goat cheese salad.
 French Herb
These herbs consist of chives, parsley, basil, tarragon, rosemary and marjoram. The chèvre is rolled in the dried herbs after it is taken from the cheese mold.
Cranberry
A beautiful cheese for the table and one of Amazing Acres Goat Dairy’s most popular cheeses. Wonderful for breakfast on a bagel as well as before dinner as hors d’oeurves.
 Roasted Garlic
Amazing Acres Goat Dairy uses their naturally home-grown garlic for this popular variety. Garlic lovers flip over this chèvre, and it comes with a roasted garlic clove on top.
Cracked Pepper
Cracked pepper is stirred throughout the cheese and the cheese is also then rolled in it.
Chipotle
This one has a great smoky chipotle taste with a kick at the end. The pinkish color also makes a pretty presentation on your cheese and veggie plate.
Rosemary Lemon
Lemon and a light pinch of rosemary are added to this chèvre at the time it’s put in the cheese mold and then the finished product is sprinkled with light touches of both. This cheese offers a subtle yet distinctive flavor.
