From Fat Toad Farm’s Website: Fat Toad Farm is a small family-run goat dairy located in the hills of Central Vermont. It is run by our family, Steve Reid, Judith Irving, and Calley and Josey Hastings. Our goal is to work closely with the land and our animals in order to produce healthy local food for our customers. Our family has spent the last several years building a high quality Alpine goat herd. This past year, we took a major leap and became a certified goat dairy producing fresh goat cheese, goat milk caramel, and farm fresh and pasteurized goat milk. Our twenty does are rotationally grazed during the pasture months and are fed grain and local hay to supplement their diet.
The process for making caramel from goat milk is quite different than making cheese. It’s more like making maple syrup. We hand-stir fresh goat milk and organic cane sugar over the stove for about four hours. During this time, the sugars in the milk and the sugar caramelize and produce the most incredible creamy caramel sauce. Rest assured that a lot of deep thinking and bad singing to the blasting boom box go into this caramel!
We sell our caramel in single 8 oz jars or in a one-of-a-kind wooden box with sliding top, made locally by Vermont Wooden Box Company, which features one jar of each flavor. Visit our website at http://fattoadfarm.com.
Fat Toad Farm Caramel is available at the Hannah Grimes Marketplace!
