Maggie Foard studied horticulture at the City College of San Francisco (CCSF), but she wasn't introduced to fresh goat cheese until she went on a school field trip ten years ago with her son to the local goat farm. She simply fell in love with not only goat cheese but the whole goat farm! Incorporating goat cheese and other goat dairy into cooking was just a natural consequence, since she was already an avid chef. Maggie lives on twelve acres in rural San Mateo County of California, with her husband, Jim, and their teenage son, Eric. She raises her own chickens for eggs and has dogs, cats, goats, ducks, peacocks, and a rooster.
