Noel-Nordfelt Animal Science Goat Dairy Creamery

About this Project

Goats have been part of UC Davis teaching, research and outreach for more than 100 years and with the addition of this facility, we will now be home to the first full-service goat dairy and creamery built on a major land-grant, teaching and research university in the United States.

When complete, the Dairy and Creamery will be a hub for education, production and research in the manufacture and marketing of humane certified, locally sourced, sustainably produced goat cheese; it will also help students model common animal husbandry issues facing goat dairies. The facility includes a milking parlor, milk room, clean-in-place room and an aged-cheese room.
