Fat Toad Farm

Meet Judith Irving

"I’m Judith Irving, founder and partner of Fat Toad Farm, a goat dairy nestled down a seven-mile dirt road in the hills of central Vermont. We combine the fresh milk from our 54 French Alpine goats, organic cane sugar and six hours of hand-stirring to create a creamy, delicious treat called Cajeta--a Goat’s Milk Caramel Sauce that you just have to taste to believe."
