Fraga Farmstead Creamery is Oregon's only certified organic goat dairy. We milk 72 very happy goats, turning the milk into a wide range of delicious cheese as well as goat milk caramel. . We have been licensed Animal Welfare Approved since 2019. Our cheeses are available at New Seasons Market and regional farmers markets, as well as at Co-Ops in the Portland Metro Area. Pick up at the farm can also be arranged.
Fraga Farmstead Creamery is located in Gales Creek Valley, a tributary of the Tualatin River, half an hour west of Portland. We share the valley with vineyards, orchards and other organic farms and look forward to farm to table dinners with locally sourced produce. These pictures were taken during a perfect spring sunday afternoon. We took the goats for a walk in a neighboring clover field. They were mostly interested in the cow pies that were interspersed with the purple clover.
Nestled behind three enormous walnut trees, Fraga Farm’s iconic red barn pays homage to the farm’s past life as a small cow dairy. Some aspects of the previous dairy still remain, like the cement milk cooling troughs which are still present in the old milk parlor. In 2015, the farm welcomed a new dairy addition, two years in the making. The new facility, attached to the existing red barn, includes a beautiful new cheesemaking room, in-line milking system and milk storage area, packaging room, walk-in cooler, and cheese cave (because every Cheesemaker needs their cave). We love our old, red barn and are working hard to preserve its charm while restoring it.
