Sitting on 21 picturesque acres in the Rougemont area in northern Durham County, Elodie Farms produces a variety of farmstead goat cheeses including Chevre, Feta and Camembert, plus vegetables and eggs. They also raise chickens, ducks and pigs. The farm is owned and operated by Dave Artigues, who started the dairy in 2003, converting a tobacco packing house into a cheese kitchen and milking room. In addition to their cheeses and gourmet monthly dinners from the area’s best chefs, Elodie Farms offers guests a pristine, natural and relaxing setting for agritourism events including weddings, parties, team-building exercises, summer day camps and educational field trips. Elodie Farms has flexible hours for visits and tours or to purchase cheese.
