Prime quality goat cheese from the Eifel
In the town of Gillenfeld, located close to a beautiful crater lake – the Pulvermaar – and right in the heart of the unspoilt countryside of the Vulkaneifel, there lies the goat cheese dairy Vulkanhof. The family farm has been certified as one of the best cheese dairies in Germany and is appraised for its prime quality and delicious cheese all over the world.
The Vulkanhof exists since 1961. In 1985, Ms Inge Thommes-Burbach took over the farm from her parents as a pure dairy farm. In 1995, it was completely reorganised and since then has been concentrating only on goat keeping with an associated cheese dairy. By doing so, the farm has put its focus on a kind of agriculture that is quite atypical of the Eifel – but success has proved it right.
With this homepage we give you a detailed insight into our life and work. Find out what makes our cheese so special, and how we produce our unique goods in traditional manual labour, with patience, diligence, and best ingredients. Discover our goats and the beautiful countryside they live in. Explore the large variety of our cheese, but also of our sausage and other delicacies.
We are looking forward to your questions, your visit at our farm and at our farm shop, or your order of a “gourmet box”.
Kind regards from the heart of the Vulkaneifel,
Inge Thommes-Burbach, family, and team
