Founder, Cypress Grove Inc.
Humboldt Area Foundation Board
Even before Cypress Grove was founded in 1983, Keehn had more than ten years of goat husbandry under her belt. Looking for healthy milk for her four daughters and capitalizing on her background in biology she found a growing interest in the complexity of cheesemaking. Cypress Grove now employees over 70 people, 1000 goats, and sends it’s cheese around the US. “Retirement” allows for time to enjoy her 6 grandchildren, travel, and a variety of commitments to local endeavors.
