Does' Leap is a diversified organic farm located in the heart of the beautiful green mountains in northern Vermont. They specialize in a variety of fresh and aged goat cheeses, all made from their own goats milk.
Their goats, a combination of Alpine and Alpine-Nubian cross, forage on the local browse and grass during the majority of the year, and are given supplemental hay, alfalfa and organic grain during the winter months. The milk from these goats is characteristic of their diverse diet- rich and sweet.
"We believe in a diversified farm ecosystem where each aspect of our farm complements the other."
The above statement drives many of the practices used on their farm. They use the power of two draft horses for much of their farm work - including plowing, harrowing, spreading manure, and firewood collection. Their goats and other livestock enjoy browsing on the wild vegetation available, with supplemental fodder with the change in seasons.
"As a result of our reliance on browse and grass, our cheeses are of exceptionally high quality and take on the flavor of our varied vegetation and Vermont’s changing seasons." - Does' Leap
