In 2013, Belle Chevre renovated an old cotton warehouse in the heart of downtown Elkmont, Alabama into a beautiful, artisan goat cheese creamery. For over 100 years, this building has been the heartbeat of Elkmont, formerly a storage warehouse for cotton to be shipped on the adjacent railroad (now the Richard Martin Rails to Trails.)
Get an exclusive peek into the cheesemaking process explained by one of our very own cheesemakers, and learn the history of belle chevre through our short film: “Tasia and The Cheese Revolution.”
Walk around the creamery to see first hand how we make our cheese, meet our kids (goats), and take a stroll down the Richard Martin Rails to Trails.
End the tour with a treat! Enjoy samples of our cream and artisan cheeses. Don’t forget to stop by our Tasting Room Cafe afterwards to try our cheeses paired with some delicious complements.
Tour our creamery to get a behind the scenes look at how we handcraft our award-winning chevre. Private tours are available for school groups, churches and clubs.
