Pholia Farm bred milking Nigerian Dwarf Goats from 2003-2021. For 10 years the farm was a licensed creamery making raw milk cheeses. In 2021 we began caring for our aging parents and their homes, so decided–with a tear or two–to stop breeding goats. We continue to milk, though, and enjoy a small herd of mostly pets.

The farm occupies about 24 acres in rural southern Oregon. It is part of the original 220 acre Spring Brook farm started by Gianaclis’s parents, Robert and Joan Stevenson in the late 1940s.

The farm now cares for a small herd of old goats and continues to focus on permaculture and forest restoration; experiences; and education.

We offer classes, a memorable farmstay experience in our refurbished 1970 Airstream and tiny Bunk House (on Airbnb) and other opportunities to visit the farm and share in our lives and lifestyle.
