Main Street Cheese LLC is a small-scale, woman-owned, licensed goat cheese-making operation committed to the craft of cheesemaking. 

It is inspired by both a devotion to artisanal production as well as a conviction that local, sustainable agriculture can help to usher in a new, life-centered, generative economy through consumer and citizen action. 

Main Street Cheese sells its fresh and aged cheeses, as well as goat meat (various cuts and frozen, prepared stews and curries) directly to people at its honor-system shop on Main Street in Hancock, New Hampshire. 

Main Street Cheese welcomes visitors to come delight in the joys of goats and cheese!  From May to mid-October, kids are raised on Main Street.  Year-round, people are welcome to sit in our garden, perhaps to be joined by our three elder goats—Paula, her daughter, Rosa, and Leopold, a neutered male who was born in 2013 to the larger herd that we had at that time. 

Main Street Cheese also has a new agritourism component—Goat/Cheesemaking classes for adults and children in which people can help with goat care and make some cheese.  Main Street Cheese also invites visitors to its Farm-Based Air BnB which includes a festive meal based on our products.  

In the context of community conviviality and sustainable gastronomic delight, we hope to create a space for real conversations about ways forward into life-affirming economic and agricultural systems.
