creamery tours are back!

Starting on September 8th our new tour days and hours are: Thursdays and Fridays at 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM.

The Creamery

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 a short film.

Walk around the creamery to see first hand how we make our cheese, meet our goat celebrities, and take a stroll down the Richard Martin Rails to Trails.

End the tour with a treat! Enjoy samples of all of our goat  cheese products paired with some delicious complements.

Meet our new twins Carmela (left) and Aggie (right), born on Thanksgiving day, two of the many goats born here at Belle Chevre Creamery.  Although we do not milk our goats, they serve as ambassadors for our guests during tours. Come on by for a tour and meet our current goat residents Dumplin’, Spice and her new born twins.
