We purchased a former 100-acre goat cheese farm near Lindsay, Ontario, with the hope of starting a farm-based business while raising a family. It wasn’t until the neighbours kept knocking on our door and asking for goat cheese, that we thought to make a go of it and continue in the footsteps of the previous owners. And so, Mariposa Dairy was created, named after the township of Mariposa, where Lenberg Farms is located.
Since 1989, we have been crafting award-winning, high-quality, mindfully-made goat cheese products, designed with delicious in mind. Our beginnings were humble but our ambition surpassed that, and we quickly grew from one goat to a herd of nearly 1300. We also expanded our product offering to a comprehensive line of handcrafted cheeses ranging from fresh chevre to aged cheeses.
In February of 2018, we realized the increasing demand for the cheese products and decided to focus solely on the production of goat cheese. We have passed the ownership of our goat herd to the Bons family. The Bons have built a new barn and milking parlour where the goats now reside. They continue to supply us with goat milk for the cheese products.
In the United States and Canada, you can find our goat milk cheese products in the specialty cheese section of your local grocery store, under the brand names of Celebrity and Lenberg Farms. When you purchase our cheese products, you can trust that they were made in a thoughtful and sustainable way, with you in mind.
