Each week Im pressing and scanning flowers to archive what the goats have been eating and therefore what is making their milk unique at each time of year. These are some of the treasures that they were gobbling up last week. Im looking forward to this collection growing over time. 
So above is what you will taste in our goats’ milk last week, your caramels this week and your cheese in two to three months…

It might look like Ledge is offering me a dandelion, but she is not. She is in the midst of swinging the flower wildly around her face as a black fly swatter. Clever goat.

Another evening, another breakout of kids. At least they were thoughtful enough last night to come running quickly, before we had taken off our farm clothes and settled in for a cocktail.

We are really excited that Big Picture Farm is now solar powered! With many thanks to the help of a USDA REAP grant, the good folks at Brattleboro Savings & Loan, and All Earth Renewable for making it happen.

Orion & Gertrude are special goats for a lot of reasons. But they also both have daughters, granddaughters, and GREAT granddaughters here on the farm. We think that is pretty cool.

Also pretty cool: our caramels made it into InStyle Magazine’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide!
