Pholia Farm is best known for its high quality, milking Nigerian Dwarf Goats and it’s aged, raw milk cheeses (made from 2006-20016). Owned by Vern and Gianaclis Caldwell and named after their daughters Phoebe and Amelia (from which the name Pholia originates), Pholia Farm occupies about 24 acres in rural southern Oregon. The land is part of a much larger tract upon which Gianaclis, then Susan Stevenson, was raised. The last batch of  Pholia Farm Cheese was made in the fall of 2016. Pholia will continue to milk goats and teach classes, however and produce it’s cow milk cheese product – Gia’s Cheesorizo.
