If you need a dose of Feel Good injected into your Monday, look no further than Farm Weather — the sweet-as-pie blog from homemade caramel makers Louisa and Lucas of Big Picture Farms in Vermont. Their ethos is to integrate argiculture with storytelling because they believe that the flavor of any food is deepened by an awareness of its provenance, and they put a lot of effort into letting us get to know (and completely fall in love with) the goats that provide the milk that goes into their tasty, toothy treats. For example, this is Twig, when she is at a mere 14 hours of age and already in possession of "the soul of a grandma":
Their stories aren't limted to the goats, though, we also get to know the property's resident guards, Lola and Elvis:
And in case that isn't adorable enough for you yet, here are some goats stacked in a barn:
But lest we forget the mission statement of the farm (which actually isn't how cute the goats are, though that's difficult to ignore), make sure to browse their online store for made-to-order goodies. Our caramel treat of choice would proably be Wooden Gift Box, which includes forty goat milk caramels with sea-salt and a hint of pure bourbon vanilla. No kidding!
