Goat Milk Caramels
Each small batch is made with the goat milk from our registered Nigerian Dwarf Goats. Because the dairy has a whopping 6% - 10% butterfat, these candies are very creamy and soft, leaving a rich caramel flavor in your mouth. Beware that once you have one, you might not be able to resist another!

Behind the Scenes
Getting the goat milk
Twice a day, the dairy goats are milked by Olivia. They have a special diet of sweet feed, good quality hay, and alfalfa cubes that improve the flavor of the milk.
Making the caramels
It can take around 30 minutes until the caramel mixture reaches its needed temperature - well over 230 degrees. Once it is done, flavoring is added as well as any toppings or additions.
The cooling time
The caramel is poured into its tray, then chilled between 4 - 5 hours in the refrigerator before it is solid enough to cut.
Cutting the pieces
The caramels are hand cut in bite sized pieces and wrapped for the boxes.
Finishing the packing
The wrapped caramels are placed in their 5 oz. boxes and labeled. You can find them online, in the Painted Tree (Crestview Hills, KY), or at various farmers' markets/vendor events we attend.
