Shellbark Hollow Farm



Shellbark Hollow Farm sits in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania and makes award-winning artisan goat cheeses from our own herd of purebred Nubian goats. Cheesemaker Pete Demchur operates this family run business, making handmade cheese on site.  At Shellbark, we believe that fresh, no-nonsense ingredients made with care contributes to an honest relationship between the food producers and the consumers of America. Thats why we’re proud to use all natural ingredients in our products, and work hard to have the milk processed and on the market in 7 days or less.

 Recognized as one of Chester County’s oldest established artisan goat dairies, Shellbark Hollow Farm provides products to many chefs, fine restaurants, retail establishments, and local farmers’ markets throughout the tri-state area.

Shellbark Hollow Farm’s herd of Nubian goats produces a high-quality, rich, butterfat milk that cheese lovers crave. Philadelphia Magazine honored Shellbark Hollow Farm with a “Best of Philly 2008″ award for their Dry Sharp Chèvre, and Philadelphia Inquire name their Chèvre and Sharp 2 cheeses “Cheese of the Month” for November 2009.  Shellbark Hollow Farm is a member of the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, the Chester County Cheese Artisans, and the Pennsylvania Farmstead & Artisan Cheese Alliance.

    Hello! I have a quick question for you – do you offer raw milk cheeses or just pasteurized cheeses? Do you usually offer cheese and raw milk at your stand at the Phoenixville Farmers’ Market? That’s the market closest to me.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Thanks in advance for taking a moment to answer my question.

      Hi Tina,
      Yes we sometimes have raw cheeses. At the moment we only have raw feta, but as the season picks up (May) we will try to have more available, such as our tomme. If you follow us on Facebook and check the market newsletter that’s the best way to find out what’s new.

    i love goat cheese , but can you tell me if they are ever fed GMO feed? many thanks !

    • Hi Karen!
      Sorry for the late response, the farm has finally settled down now after our move to Honey Brook, PA! This is a topic we care deeply about- we only select feed for our goats that is strictly GMO-free. They also aren’t fed a lot of grain, as our large grassy pastures give them most of the nutrition they require. Let me know if you have any other questions!
