“We have not only exceeded our goals, but exeeded any dreams – the company provides great cheese to customers around the country and provides jobs with excellent benefits for its employees.”
~Mary Keehn, Founder, Cypress Grove Chevre
Internationally known Cypress Grove Chevre was started more than 30 years ago by Humboldt County resident Mary Keehn, who initially bought dairy goats to provide a healthy source of milk for her daughters.
Keehn then expanded her vision and in 1983 used a $10,000 family loan and a lot of sweat equity to start a goat milk creamery-hoping to create a family lifestyle business.
That business has since grown to include a world class dairy operating on 40 acres. Cypress Grove Chevre produces award winning cheeses and employs over 55 people in Humboldt County. The company also continues to evolve and looks forward to improving current products and developing new ones, improving wages and benefits, decreasing energy use, and continuing to support the local community.
