Drake Family Farms
Artisan Goat Milk & Cheese
Drake Family Farms in a century goat dairy farm and creamery located in West Jordan, Utah that sells a wide variety of products including: raw goat milk (available for purchase only at the farm), grade a pasteurized goat milk, natural European style yogurt, and four varieties of cheese (chevre – 7 flavors; mozzarella, feta and ricotta).
Drake Family Farms is dedicated to the best care for their farm and animals – the best quality milk comes from happy healthy goats; and the best cheese comes only from the highest quality milk.
All the goats on the farm have names and are registered with the American Dairy Goat Association. We love our goats and give them a very high standard of care. Goats are like dogs with individual personalities and we consider every goat a pet. The herd consists of Nubian, Saanen, Alpine, and Snubian Goats. (Snubians are a hybrid cross between Saanen and Nubians).

“I love the caramel-flavored goat cheese. So subtle and creamy, and not too sweet.” – Kimberly Spurgeon, Facebook Review

“I love coming here. I go to buy things and to watch the baby goats. They have a little store and I love the chev cheese. It is beyond delicious. If you go to the house north of the store they have goat milk soap, lotion, and lip balm for sale. I tried the rose petal soap and the super scrubber and I don’t think I’ll ever use anything else. My skin has been so irritated and dry and using the soap completely changed that. I looked up other handmade soaps and they have soap fillers this soap the only liquid is fresh goat’s milk. Love that.” – Jessica Pilling, Google Review

Ron & Jeanette Drake
The original Drake Family Farms Goat Dairy is in West Jordan, Utah near the geographic center of Salt Lake Valley. In 1872 Edward Drake immigrated from Kent County England. In 1880 he purchased his farm. Today it is a designated historic Utah Century Farm. The Utah Century Farm designation is for farms that have been continuously operated by the same family for at least 100 years. Six generations of the Drake Family have farmed at this site in West Jordan, Utah.
In the 1970s Ron and Jeanette Drake decided to be the fourth generation to continue the tradition and to raise their family on this farm.
