Family Owned Farmstead Dairy in Honey Creek, IA
Doe’s and Diva’s Dairy in Western IA crafts combined milk products including fresh chevre, feta and marinated feta, and aged tommes. The farmstead is the only sheep and goat dairy in the state of Iowa producing cheese since 2005. An authentic cheese cave was constructed to age the cheese in a natural environment. Templeton Rye barrels have been custom fitted and placed inside the cave to age select tommes for development of a unique flavor. Templeton Rye whiskey was produced nearby in Templeton, Iowa and know as the “Good Stuff” during prohibition.
In addition to our handcrafted cheese, nourishing goat milk soaps and lotions are produced using time honored production methods.
Our passion is connecting the community with healthy products. We are proud of our sustainable practices, our commitment to lifestyle, our faith and our family. We are also humbled by the experience of building a business based on the support of family, friends and the community.
We are unique in the fact that we encourage visitors to experience our choices, taste our cheese and become a small part of the local food movement to a healthier lifestyle.
The Story Behind the Name
The Doe’s and Diva’s Dairy name just fits! Female goats are often referred to as “does”. While the female sheep is typically referred to as a “ewe”, during milking they become “divas”. Owner, Janna Feldman explains, “Sheep are like milking a cat. It’s so much harder than milking a goat that I end up calling the sheep my divas.”
