    What are average prices for goat cheeses? Chevre, feta, feta marinated in oil/herbs, mozz? I have been searching online plus looking in grocery stores and have found quite the range...

    You're right, there is a huge range of prices for goat cheese! If you are a non graded dairy you will just have to work with what is reasonable to ask in your demographic. If you have a grade a dairy/dairy processing license and a web site it stands to reason that you can get a lot more.

    hhhmm, well i understand that it will vary. I guess just looking for what people on here might sell it for, for those who do....? Or what it might go for in certain areas. Is there a general rule of thumb (chevre costing more/less than feta, mozz less etc.) that usually applies? It seems some of the prices I have found seemed to be backwards as far as how much time is involved in making one cheese vs. another.

    My prices are very low. I charge .75/oz for soft cheese and $1-$2/oz for hard cheeses.

    At Whole Foods in Austin, Texas, chevre with herbs de provence is $30/lb.

    At Central Market, goat ricotta was $9.99/lb.

    Charge whatever your market will bear!

    Thanks you guys, that gives me somewhat of an idea. I will keep checking around in different stores too. It is the same thing with eggs around here. Where I live, there is someone who sells theirs for $2 a dozen. Where I work (about 15 miles away) there is alot more higher income families who are all getting into the "organic" and "Fresh" scene. This is where I sell my eggs and people are happy to pay the $2.50 I charge and usually give me $3 a dozen.

    For soft dog cheese I get $1.50 per ounce and for do-feta I get $1.75-2.50 per ounce depending on what is in it oils/herbs, plain. I get $3.50 per dozen for eggs.

    Hope this helps,
