Laini Fondiller started Lazy Lady Farm in 1987. She has created a unique operation not only because she produces such a wide variety of cheeses, but also because her farmstead cheesemaking business is completely off the grid. The farm uses power captured by their bank of solar panels and a wind generator. Fondiller has grown her operation from a handful of sheep to a robust small farm with a herd of approximately 40 Alpines, pigs fed with whey from the dairy, cattle raised for beef. She has long since let go of the sheep and she has acquired a couple dairy cows, too. They milked their goats by hand up until 2000, and cheese was made in Fondiller’s kitchen up through 1994, finally getting licensed to make cheese commercially in 1995. Her goats are milked seasonally so the cheeses she makes change throughout the year, producing goat milk cheeses and then shifting to mixed milk and even cow’s milk cheeses. She supplements her goat milk with milk from her two cows and also gets milk from a neighboring cow dairy.
