A goat cheese creamery, Belle Chevre, is located near the small village of Elkmont, Ala. The artisanal cheese operation was established in 1989 and was acquired by its current owner, Tasia Malakasis, in 2007.
Belle Chevre Cheese Shop and Tasting Room opened on Saturday, April 13 in a 100-year-old building in downtown Elkmont.

Sweet Baby Goats
Three baby goats were in attendance as well. Aren't they the cutest things?
|This old building is located at the rear of the Belle Chevre retail shop. The creamery operation will eventually move into this space.|
Along the Way
Have you ever seen Canola growing? I had not until two years ago. I had no idea the crop is grown in this area. What a beautiful field the plants make.
Suppose I had never thought about where canola oil comes from! A plant, naturally!
