Victory Hill Farms, a "Homegrown Tour" spot on the NE Passport Program

Posted: Updated:

More than ten locations in the panhandle have made their way into the Nebraska Tourism Commission's Passport Program.

A fan favorite on the Nebraska Homegrown Tour invites tourists to visit a working farm and taste some family recipes at Victory Hill Farm.

 
"This is definitely a unique farm because it's a farmstead operation and what that means is I milk the goats and make the cheese here. And there's around 50 of those in the U.S. It's pretty rare because it's so much work, so to be able to see both sides of the dairy operation on the same property makes it unique," says owner Sarah Pinet.
 
The 42 head goat dairy and cheese making operation has attracted locals for years.

Hopes with including it on the passport program for the first year are to showcase the quirky characteristics to those outside of Scottsbluff.
 
"We hit the nail on the head with this stop and I know that the visitors are going to love it. And kudos to the community. You have a really great resource here, so enjoy it and support it," says Kathy McKillip, Director of the Nebraska Tourism Commission.
 
Victory Hill Farm not only produces goat cheese, but also fresh eggs, raw honey, milk fed pork, and in-season produce.

Pinet says if you get lucky, you may even catch her in the cheese-making process
"Depending on the day, what's going on, you might even catch me still milking or making cheese or that kind of thing. You can always see the farm animals too during that time."
