Chèvre from Pure Luck Farm & Dairy 

Think chèvre had its moment in the 1990s? National Goat Cheese Month is a good reminder that the tangy, creamy fromage came into vogue for a reason. It’s a great time to rediscover the diversity of cheeses our local farms are producing. Start with these.

Pure Luck Farm & Dairy Chèvre

Dripping Springs

The award-winning cheese is drained in a basket for a pretty pattern, but it's the creamy, herbaceous taste that makes this a winner. Pick up yours at Houston Dairymaids.

Blue Heron Farm Feta

Field Store

Less salty than typical fetas, which are most commonly made with sheep cheese, this creamy specimen is unique. Get it at the Urban Harvest and Rice University Farmers Markets.

Swede Farm Lemon and Blueberry Goat Cheese


This farm produces yogurt, kefir and chocolate truffles from its non-homogenized goat milk. With an emphasis on sweet, is it any surprise that one of their chèvres is flavored with citrus and berry for a cheesecake-like effect? Try it at Memorial Villages and Meyerland Farmers Markets.

Discover other varieties, too, at these local markets:
