Gompei is WPI’s beloved goat mascot, and now you can buy goat cheese bearing his name. Gompei’s Goat Cheese is WPI’s first non-profit, student-run business. We partner with Westfield Farm, in Hubbardston, MA, offering ten flavors of goat cheese. Our products are sold online and at local Worcester businesses. All proceeds fund student IQP scholarships. It’s great cheese... for a great cause.

Who is Gompei's Goat Cheese?

Gompei's Goat Cheese is a team made up of dedicated students. Our team members volunteer their time for this non-profit business because they believe in the good that it can bring. In 2018, we donated $2500 to the IQP scholarship program to help give more students access to the unique opportunities that WPI offers. Our team is constantly growing and evolving, and is always looking for new, innovate ways to help put the Gompei’s Goat Cheese mission into practice.

Desserts

Is it Desert or Dessert? The best mnemonic that we always use at Gompei’s Goat Cheese is that desserts are great so they have two s’s while deserts are kinda lame so they only get one s. This, of course, assumes that you’re not a Scorpion; because otherwise, that mnemonic might be a bit confusing. On a more important note, our desserts have the most exquisite flavor, and all your friends will be so surprised that the secret ingredient is goat cheese!
