“I really like doing this. Is this crazy?” Molly Kroiz recalled…
“Molly Kroiz, a native of Maine, started making goat cheese in her kitchen just for fun, while living in the Northwest with her husband, Sam, a carpenter from Lovettsville.
Now, after winning the Loudoun County Small Business Development Center’s Business Plan Awards in the local business category in November, the couple is well on their way to establishing Georges Mill Farm Artisan Cheese, a goat cheese business.
Georges Mill Farm Artisan Cheese will be the only goat cheese maker in Loudoun County, an area rich in wineries, farm-to-fork philosophy and farming.
While many Americans consume primarily cow cheese as part of their normal diet, goat cheese is the cheese of choice throughout the rest of the world.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, goat cheese is actually lower in fat and higher in protein than many other soft cheeses. It’s also easier to digest than the more common bovine versions.
With their opening just a few months away, the Kroizs allowed the Loudoun Times-Mirror full access as they go through final preparations for opening.”
