I had the pleasure of sampling an exquisite treat the other day: goat’s milk caramel. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I hadn’t. Fat Toad Farm is a small, family-operated goat dairy in Vermont.
More about the goats:
The goats are the heart and soul of our farm, their health and well-being is our highest priority. Our 55 milking does (female goats) are rotationally grazed during the pasture months on thirty acres of neighboring green pastures, they are also fed high quality grain and hay to supplement their diet. The does are bred in the fall by our four beautiful bucks, Thunder, Obe, and Major, and after a five month gestation period they will kid in March. Baby goats (kids) are called doelings if they are females and bucklings if they are male. We keep some doelings that will become future members of our herd and raise them together with their mothers.We take great pride in the quality of our herd and their milk and always use the freshest milk to make our caramel and cheeses. Follow these links to learn more about how we make cheese and caramel.
I knew right away that I wanted to sample the caramel in a couple of different ways – over a dish of ice cream and with a perfect HoneyCrisp apple.
Out.Of.This.World. The salted bourbon caramel took my dish of ice cream to a whole new level, one that I hope to revisit again soon! Dipping my apple in the caramel was the perfect way to enjoy an afternoon snack!
Fat Toad Farm has several varieties of goat’s milk caramel:
- Vanilla Bean
- Salted Bourbon
- Coffee Bean
All varieties of caramel are gluten-free. I didn’t know there were so many great uses for caramel until I read “10 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do with Goat’s Milk Caramel”. I assure you that I will get right to work on sampling the caramel in all of those ways to let you know what I think. First up? In my morning coffee!
Fat Toad Goat’s Milk Caramel can be purchased nationwide at Williams-Sonoma or at many other locations. If you prefer to shop online, visit the Fat Toad online store. What is your favorite way to eat caramel? Have you ever tried the Fat Toad products?
