Published on Thu, 07/03/2014 - 10:05am

Lois Reichert is the owner and operator of Reichert’s Dairy Air, a goat micro-dairy located in Knoxville, Iowa. About ten years ago Lois and her family set out to raise and care for a few goats. This led to a commercial dairy license and a larger herd that ranges from 15 to 20 LaMancha and Nubian goats. Today, Lois is the head cheese-maker and goat–keeper at the dairy, while her husband, son, and seasonal employees chip in as needed.

Small batches of cheese are handmade daily by Lois to ensure high quality and freshness. While Lois enjoys the challenges associated with cheese-making, the sweet tempered and quirky goats are her true love. This love for her animals is evident in the popular, award-winning cheeses produced at the dairy.
