Fraga Farm has participated in Oregon State research projects and is the only certified organic goat cheesemaker in Oregon. Co-owner Janice Neilson gained the experience needed to earn her pasteurizing license by auditing a dairy processing class taught by Oregon State professor Lisbeth Goddik. Lisbeth also assisted Janice with the calculations required in scaling recipe quantities necessary to take her product to market. On the farm, Janice has reciprocated by apprenticing students from Oregon State’s animal science and dairy processing science departments.
