Interesting article. I would like to see a list of suggested stores by county for obtaining goat milk and goat cheese products

I loved this story!!! And never knew there were goat farms in Connecticut...My Greek Grandmother - God Bless her soul - would have had us driving her there often...because she grew up on a goat farm in Greece.
It's fantastic to read such a wonderful story with all the dread news we've had in the past years. Back to basics...I bet if we all tried to do it..we'd knock off a lot of that built up stress that kills a little bit of our personalities every day.

I just had some goat cheese from a farm in Colchester and it was absolutely delicious.

I know it's a hike from Waterbury, but folks in the general area should try the Willimantic Food Co-Op, believe they stock Beltane products. That's another mantra (aside from "buy local")- always check the Willi Food Co-Op!! for their website; it's worth it just to tour and see what they've got and maybe start thinking outside the box. Not just for granola-heads anymore!!(if it really ever was!) Nope, don't get paid for the endorsement!

Beltane Farm goat cheese and others will be available at the Farmers' Market at Billings Forge in Hartford on Mondays and Thursdays from 11 am to 2 pm beginning May 22nd. It is located on Broad St. near Capitol Ave. This year we have added many vendors and will even have local ice cream from Fish Family Farm in Bolton!

We took a days' drive out to Meadowstone Farm last Summer both for their raw milk (which is delicious, and they are the only ones I could find that are feeding organic) and their cheeses. Fabulous! Not only delicious but worth the drive for milk, honey and the most unique cheeses. Appears that most of the "exotic" goat cheeses are available (according to Kris, the cheesemaker) in Summer. Many are leaf wrapped, and the cheeses are wrapped in their own plants the leaves from local vineyards. We plan to take another drive out in a few weeks - once they have their truffles available! Can't wait!
