Frog Pond Farm
Frog Pond Farm & Dairy
The Only Grade A Goat Dairy in NE Ohio
2011 - 2015
When we purchased our property in 2011, we just wanted a place outside of town with some acreage for our horses. It wasn’t until 2013 that we actually came up with the name “Frog Pond Farm.”
Our goal at that time was to be reasonably self-sustainable and produce as many healthy non-GMO foods that we could manage.
We began our menagerie with a few ducks to swim on our pond along with the two horses.. Shortly after, we figured we should add a few chickens for some farm-fresh eggs and organic meat.
In 2013, "Frog Pond Farm" was established with the above logo..
In 2014, we added our first beehive. Finally, in 2015, we welcomed our first two goats to our farm. THAT was when everything changed...
And then the goats arrived....
2015 - 2019
In 2015 our lives changed in ways we could never have imagined when we purchased our first two dairy goats.
We never had intentions for it to become the goat farm it is today. In 2016, when our goat Isabelle started to produce milk spontaneously (a precocious udder), we needed a use for it, so we made soap. Someone asked us if the soap was for sale, so we sold our first bar. And now, it is a full-blown business.
In 2018, we added delicious goat milk fudge by special order during the holidays and at select markets we attended. Demand for the fudge has grown so much that we now offer it year-round!
in 2019, we updated our logo to include the word "Dairy" as we begin to focus on the next phase of growth- becoming a full-service dairy.
2020 and Beyond
As 2020 rolls in we plan to continue adding new products. Our most exciting product and the one we have been working towards will finally be for sale this year, Goat Cheese!
This has been a long time in the making and should be available mid 2020. This requires more construction as well as Ohio Dept of Agriculture certifications.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page and the website as we post updates on the progress.
We pride ourselves on providing top-quality products, not only for our personal use, but also for our customers. Mostly though, we pride ourselves in giving the best care we can to our animals. The 25 goats, 8 chickens, 5 cats, 2 dogs, and thousands of bees are a big part of what makes Frog Pond Farm what it is, and without them it would just be a field with an empty barn.
