Fat Toad Farm Cajeta - Traditional Goat's Milk Caramel
Fat Toad Farm Cajeta - Traditional Goat's Milk Caramel Gourmet
Since 2007, Fat Toad Farm in Brookfield, Vermont has worked to perfect the art of goat's milk caramel making, focusing on traditional cooking methods and using a small number of fresh, simple, all-natural ingredients. Starting out as an experiment in homesteading and hand milking a lovely French Alpine doe named Jupiter in their garage, Fat Toad Farm began its production sourcing all of goat milk from their own herd of dairy goats. Eight years later, we were milking Jupiter's daughter Artemis and 60 of her closest caprine friends in a modern parlor. Each year, their family-run business, founded by Steve Reid, Judith Irving, and Calley Hastings, continued to grow incrementally to meet the increasing demand for their award-winning Goat's Milk Caramel Sauces.
At the start of 2016, they began their partnership with Vermont Creamery to source a year-round supply of fresh, local goat's milk. Their beautiful and mischievous herd of 75 dairy goats moved eight miles down the road to Ayers Brook Goat Dairy, a first-of-its-kind model goat dairy in the United States run by Vermont Creamery. Their goats joined the herd over at Ayers Brook and began to supply milk for their goat's milk caramel sauces and Vermont Creamery's award-winning artisanal cheeses.
You can still find us down their beautiful, winding, sometimes muddy, sometimes snowy, sometimes really muddy, dirt road carving through the hills of Central Vermont producing the traditional goat's milk caramel we always have.
