Meet the Owners

Goat.Sheep.Cow started the way so many great ideas come to be between good friends and a few bottles of wine.

Patty Floersheimer made custom clothing most of her life, while Trudi Wagner left her life on Wall Street behind in 2007 to move to Charleston in 2009. When they met in 2007, their shared love for food and wine led them to planning wine tasting events and preparing sit-down dinners for 40 guests. 

They learned cheese basics in a tiny family-owned shop in New Jersey then took that to a whole other level at their little shop on Church Street, which they opened in 2011!

A Small Shop with A Big Heart

The original shop that started it all. 

Patty and Trudi knew cheese, and they wanted to pour their knowledge and European heritage into a carefully curated cheese shop. They rolled up their sleeves and got to work transforming the shoebox-sized location on picturesque Church Street. 

The two hundred-year-old brick walls and hand-hewn exposed beams add to the tiny space’s charm. The true feeling of a European fromagerie stems from the warm and inviting hospitality. Everyone who walks through the door becomes a friend. And size matters! The smaller space means carefully curated products. Each thoughtfully selected item must meet the highest of standards. 

goat.sheep.cow., north

After 5 years of success on Church Street, goat.sheep.cow., north was  established in 2016 on upper Meeting Street in downtown Charleston.

The "North Shop" was a much larger space with three times the size compared to its sister store on Church Street. The bigger space allowed for additional concepts which included a wine bar and café. 

Today, the North Shop continues to operate as a fromagerie with cut to order cheeses, charcuterie, wines, and gourmet groceries. The wine bar and cafe is no longer operated by goat.sheep.cow. and is shared with another business called Babas on Meeting.
