Pholia Farm has been breeding and milking Nigerian Dwarf Goats since 2003. 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.

Pholia is owned by Vern and Gianaclis Caldwell and named after their daughters Phoebe and Amelia. The farm occupies about 24 acres in rural southern Oregon. It is part of the original 220 acre Spring Brook farm started by her parents, Robert and Joan Stevenson in the late 1940s.

The farm focuses on happy, health animals; permaculture and forest restoration; experiences; and education.

Gianaclis is the author of six books on small dairy, goat care, and cheesemaking, and is a cheese judge, consultant, and speaker.

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.
