Welcome to Tourmaline Hill Farm!

Tourmaline Hill Farm is located on 26 acres in Greenwood, Maine (Norway area). We breed and raise registered Nubian and Lamancha dairy goats, which are hand-picked for their ability to produce rich, buttery milk with a sweet flavor, which allows us to produce cheeses with a mild taste and smooth texture and consistency. We use a holistic approach where applicable with our veterinary care and no animal on antibiotics is ever allowed to remain in the milk production line. We do not condone the use of growth stimulating hormones, and our feed is all natural with no added medications. Our girls and boys are allowed free range forage in our large mountainous wooded and cleared field areas, with plenty of sunshine and fresh air. Large mounts of high-quality organic hay and fresh clean water are always provided both indoors and out.

In our cheese production facility we produce small batches of hand crafted Chevre, Feta, Ricotta and Mozzarella cheeses, which are made from heat treated thermalized, not pasteurized, fresh whole goat's milk. We have a strong interest in moving into aged cheese processes in the future. All the herbs and flavorings added to our cheeses are organic and all-natural, and we use only non-GMO vegetarian microbial rennet.

In addition to our dairy herd, we have a medium-sized flock of chickens which provide farm fresh eggs for us and our customers. Also, we are often are able to offer all natural grass-fed ground beef as well. For those with a taste for goat, meat is available by request, dependant on season - please call ahead!

We are fully licensed through the State of Maine Department of Agriculture for the sale of our cheeses and unpasteurized goat's milk.
