Boston Post Dairy is named after the Old Boston Post Stagecoach road which runs straight through our farm property.

They bought the Boston Post Dairy with their four daughters in 2007 and have added a cheese making facility along with a small retail store where they sell their cheeses, goat milk soaps, maple syrup and bakery items which are all made here at the farm.
It’s hard to beat the flavor and texture of fresh Chévre. We use our own farm fresh goats milk to make our Chévre, giving it a extremely pleasant mild taste with a rich texture.Chévre is French for “goat” and is also the common name for fresh goat cheese.Like all cheeses, Chévre is a living thing. It will keep in your refrigerator for two to three weeks, if kept properly stored in it’s original container. If it is exposed to air, while being stored, it will grow mold. If the cheese develops small specks of mold, don’t be alarmed, just trim the mold away and enjoy the cheese. However, if it develops an off-odor, strange colors, or more than a touch of mold, discard the cheese.To best serve Chévre, remove it from the refrigerator about 30 minutes prior to serving and enjoy it at room temperature. Chévre like other cheeses, ripens with age, so as it sits around a week or two it will develop a stronger flavor, becoming drier, sharper and slightly acidic.
The fats in goat cheese are smaller with short-chain fatty acids and produce a soft curd. The fats in cow’s milk are long chain fatty acids and produce a harder curd that is more difficult to digest. Goat cheese fats more closely resemble human milk and are easier to digest.
If you bought more than you can eat right now, toss it in your freezer. Chévre freezes and thaws beautifully! You can just put it in your freezer in it’s original container. Thawing Chévre; for best results thaw the cheese in your refrigerator for 24-48 hours. After thawing, the flavor of the cheese will be unchanged. If you forgot to take the cheese out of the freezer and are pressed for time, you can thaw the cheese in the microwave, but this method may affect the smooth, creamy texture of the cheese. Always serve your cheese at room temperature for full flavor!
