Farmers & Producers
Our partnering Farmers and Producers are some of the best in New England. Most are organically certified, and those who are not use sustainable practices. They are in this for the love of food, farming, and the art and craft of it all. Get them into a conversation about their crops or animals, their soil practices, or their land and be prepared for a lengthy and passionate discourse. They are masters of their craft and are all very excited about the nearly direct relationship they have with you. All of them feel it is essential that families know the people who produce their food. They are fully committed to the well being and health of your family.
The entire Farmers To You team is committed to long term partnerships between Farmers and Families where careful stewardship and sustainability produce great bounty, nutrition and superior taste.
East Fairfield, VT
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 goat 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.
Their practices are driven by a belief in "a diversified farm ecosystem where each aspect of our farm complements the other." They use the power of two draft horses for much of their farm work - including plowing, harrowing, spreading manure, and firewood collection.
"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
