A Little Bit About Us
Jumpin' Good Goat Dairy was originally founded by Dawn Jump in 2002. Her dream was to combine her love for goats and cheese-making while bringing sustainable food to her local community and the world at large.
In 2008, Dawn Jump and her family returned to the Upper Arkansas River Valley to beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado to open the dairy and creamery where it stands today. Since opening our barn doors we've seen our business and mission grow and evolve with the help of our dedicated staff and ultra-supportive community.
We proudly hand-craft a variety of creative artisan goat cheeses. Our award-winning cheeses are unique adaptations of old-world cheese-making traditions. Their technique is grounded in familiar comfort while their flavors and style are continually an unexpected surprise for both goat cheese novices and experts alike. The public has come to know and love our cheeses by their bright, mild flavors and satisfying textures.
Throughout the year the public is invited to interact with the processes, people and animals on our farm while experiencing the origins of food via the on-site Jumpin' Good Country Store as well as our educational tours. The Jumpin' Good Country store is packed with locally produced products as well as our full variety of unique cheeses. We happily introduce our patrons to wonderful pairing and recipe ideas for our cheeses while sharing with them the educational aspects of farm life.
We invite all comers to visit us here in the Heart of the Rocky Mountains!
Jumpin' Good Goat Dairy is dedicated to sustainable agricultural practices, the education of our local and regional community on the function and health of local food systems, the humane treatment of animals and wholesome cheese-making.
