The People

behind Capella Meadows

Edda Boettcher

Edda was born in Germany where she definitely loved to eat cheese but didn’t think about cheesemaking yet. When she moved to Canada and on the farm she got more and more into the idea of transforming the goat milk produced on the farm into something unique and tasteful.

She took as many different cheese courses and opportunities to learn about cheese and cheesemaking as possible and will be our main cheese maker as soon as our cheese plant is ready to go.

Erik Boettcher

Erik was born on the farm and learned agriculture from day one. He took a year of study in biodynamic agriculture in Germany. After coming back, he and his brother Martin decided to get into dairy goats.

Now he wants to take the next step to refine the product of milk and by that intensify his way of farming.
