Cajeta is very similar to the ever popular dulce de leche, a dairy based confection that uses cow’s milk. Cajeta, on the other hand has its roots in Mexico and is based on goat’s milk. Fat Toad Farm is a small, family owned and operated goat dairy run by husband and wife team Judith Irving and Steve Reid and their daughters Calley Hastings and Hannah Reid. The family has spent several years building a high quality French Alpine and Saanen goat herd. In the Spring of 2007, they took a major leap and became a certified goat dairy producing fresh goat cheese and goat’s milk caramel (cajeta). Their 55 milking does (female goats) are rotationally grazed during the pasture months on thirty acres of neighboring green pastures, they are also fed high quality grain and hay to supplement their diet.
