Fraga

Farmstead Creamery

Fraga Farm is an Organic farmstead goat dairy in northern Oregon, outside Portland. We produce a full range of certified Organic goat cheese- from fresh milk chèvre to hard aged raw milk cheeses. Our goat herd enjoys all the leaves and brambles that the Oregon countryside has to offer. The rich milk that our goats provide is processed on site in our licensed Grade A Dairy. We strive to produce the best product  while adhering to our sustainable values. Our family farm invites you to taste the difference that happy goats on good pasture can make. 

Our Cheese 

 

We make a full range of goat cheese - from the traditional creamy Chevre to aged raw milk cheese reminiscent of a mature cheddar. All of our ingredients are certified organic, as is our processing facility. Cheese making is an amazing feat of alchemy - there is the milk, the culture, a pinch of salt and rennet (always plant based) and an almost infinite variety of cheeses can ensue - given patience and carefully monitored processes. We invite you to visit us at the farm or at the market and taste your way through our cheeses!

Rio Santiam

A natural rind raw milk cheese aged for several months. Complex flavor that melts in your mouth. Hard enough to grate, it can be a stand-in for parmesan. Soft enough to slice, it is reminiscent of an aged cheddar. Great on a cheese plate, we like it with a slice of pear or apple. 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Raw Milk Feta

Crumbly yet smooth, this raw milk cheese is aged in brine for several months. This cheese was awarded the first prize in the American Cheese Society competition in 2006 - Fraga's first entry. Wonderful on salads or on pizza, this cheese has a devoted following. 


Goatzarella

The name says it all - a goat mozarella perfect for slicing, snacking and melting. The only goat cheese we know that melts into stringy gooey goodness.  


Foster Lake Camembert

We started making this bloomy rind cheese in the fall of 2012, and it has become a great hit. The rind is delicate and reveals a creamy smooth cheese that ripens from the outside in. While the center stays firm, the outer edges turn creamy and glossy. A piece of Foster Lake and a chunk of sourdough bread have made us happy many times.  

 


FARMHOUSE

Farmhouse cheese is defined as a cheese produced on farm by traditional means using milk from the farm's lifestock. Our farmhouse is a pressed curd cheese that is slightly crumbly and mild but with flavor that stands up to pairing with fruit. We like to crumble it over roasted veggies or add it to egg dishes. 

FARMHOUSE CHIPOTLE

Our Farmhouse cheese is blended with certified organic chipotle peppers before being pressed. This cheese has more smoky flavor then heat. Great added to roasted veggies, egg dishes, quesadilla - you name it. 


Chevre three ways 

Chevre is what most people think of as "goat cheese". Our original Chevre is very creamy, smooth and almost fluffy with light acidity. We bake with it, we cook with it, we use it anywhere cream cheese is called for. It can go sweet or savory, with fruit in a desert or enliven pasta dishes. We love serving it with raspberries in the summer or in an omelet with chanterelles in the fall. Much lower in fat than cream cheese and higher in protein to boot. It has a favorable nutritional profile while tasting decadently rich and creamy.
