Cindy and Kevin Hope are passionate about their dairy goat farm. Their business has evolved from shipping goat milk to a line of meat products, soap, yogurt and more than a dozen flavoured cheeses. In 2010, they constructed a 6,000 square foot processing facility to meet increasing consumer demand for their products. The next year, they added a new vat for yogurt production, opened a retail store and introduced agri-tours on the farm. Today, their Cross Wind Farm products sell across the province and the Hopes share their knowledge by offering a number of hands-on courses and agri-education experiences. If you've ever wondered what it's like to be a farmer for a day or wonder how cheese is made - Cross Wind Farms can show you how.
