Foxenburg Estate is situated on the spectacular northern slopes of the
Groenberg in the Wellington area of the Western Cape. Here, a herd of Swiss
Saanen goats is expressly maintained on the certified organic farm pastures
for the production of premium quality goats milk cheeses.
Various types, such as soft fresh Chevre, Chabris and cream cheese as well
as aged-ripened hard cheeses such as Crottin, Shepherd, Caprino Romano and
Foxtail are all produced by hand honouring traditional northern Hemisphere
farmhouse cheese-making methods.
Made from 100% whole goat milk, free of preservatives, hormones, antibiotics
and artificial colourant, each cheese is manually checked and packaged,
ensuring optimum quality.
Our goats milk is influenced by the goats foraging on the Foxenburg organic
mountain terroir, giving the cheeses the distinct aroma, flavour and texture
characteristics so typical of our cheeses.
Suitable and striking presentation make Foxenburg Estate cheeses readily identifiable
and appropriate for the most discerning table.
