Drake Family Farms

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 found and returned to Drake Family Farm in South Jordan many times. Love the yogurt…adore the flavored cheeses. My favorite is the Apricot ❣️❣️ A dessert all by itself! Today I found it had returned to Harmon’s in Riverton. Yum 😋. – Jerri Mellas, Google 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

Beehive Cheese

When you take a bite of Beehive Cheese, it melts like butter in your mouth. That’s because Beehive Cheese is made from the creamiest milk in Utah and lovingly crafted into superior cheese by a family who shares a passion for the artisan way of life.

In 2005, brothers-in-law Tim Welsh and Pat Ford left the fast-paced world of software and real estate seeking a simple way of life as cheese makers. They traded their grinding commute and laptops for quiet pre-dawn mornings sitting with 500 gallons of farm-fresh milk carefully mixing and warming it for hours to develop their unique cheese. Delighting in the sweet smell of warm milk, they fell in love with the natural rhythms of making cheese the old fashioned way. The long days of polishing their recipe and the months spent waiting with an artisan’s patience for wheels to ripen to perfection have made our cheeses some of the best in America. The Beehive Cheese family is delighted to share our passion with you.

We tried Barely Buzzed in Seattle a few years ago and I had to order some. I just ran across your page and now I want more. It is the best cheese ever!
