Living Outdoors: The Goatery’s Creamery is Now Open – Here’s How to Visit
You may be asking, “How can Kiawah River’s beloved Goatery get any better?” Well…here’s how: The Creamery is officially open! With our brand-new, state-of-the-art creamery facility, The Goatery’s visitors can sample true farm-to-table freshness while exploring our community’s cutest amenity.
The Goatery at Kiawah River currently has 90-plus goats encompassing a variety of breeds including Nubian, Alpine and Lamancha, and the creamery is currently utilizing 30 of them to produce 100 gallons of raw milk and handmade goat cheese every two to three days, and co-owners Danny Sillivant and Missy Farkouh hope to soon operate with 60 goats. Committed to humane farming practices, Sillivant and Farkouh provide their top-of-the line dairy products to Kiawah River residents and restaurants across the Lowcountry, including Husk, Charleston Grill and Sorghum & Salt.
Whether you are looking to plan a day out with family, a birthday party or a corporate excursion, The Goatery offers an exciting way to learn and interact with the animals and see first-hand how each component works together to maintain a healthy and humane farm. General Goatery tours cost $20 per person and include a tour guide and private space to enjoy your time at the farm. Goat yoga is also available for $25 per person.
Creamery tours are currently by appointment only, and eventually the entire area surrounding the Goatery will be fully landscaped with seating for visitors to pop by and enjoy a glass of wine and fresh goat cheese.
What better way to spend a summer day than with our furry friends at The Goatery! You can book a private tour or goat yoga class through The Goatery’s website. And keep an eye out soon for their products in Kiawah River’s CSA program deliveries, local Charleston restaurants or nearby farmers markets including Storey Farms.
