About Us
Ran-Cher Acres is a dairy goat farm specializing in cheese making, owned and operated by Randy and Cheryl Hiltz and their youngest daughter, Sara.
Practices
On our farm overlooking the beautiful Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia, we milk 100+ purebred Saanen dairy goats. We use the milk to make cheese, yogurt, kefir and bottled pasteurized goat's milk.

Randy, Cheryl, and Sara all have a hand in doing the barn chores. Doing chores includes milking, haying, putting down fresh bedding in each pen, making sure all the goats have clean water bowls, and doing many other tasks to keep the goats happy. During the summer we also take our goats on walks through the woods. They enjoy browsing on bushes and grass along the way.

Randy and Cheryl handle most of the actual cheese making, while Sara does the packaging and labelling of our many different types of cheese.
