Columbia,SC(WLTX) - Trail Ridge Farm and Grade A Goat Dairy in Aiken is giving cows some competition.

What started out as a home school project with two goats, is now a family run business.

Eighteen years ago, Kelly Hammond and his wife got two goats to start making their own milk. Now Hammond and his family own about 60 goats and produce 17 varieties of cheeses.

The whole family is involved in the cheese making process from raising the kids, milking the goats, to selling the finished cheeses.

Trail Ridge Farm products can be purchased in Columbia at Soda City Market on Saturday mornings, Rosewood Market, and at the Sandhill Farmers Market beginning in May during the summer months.
