One of the best ways to enjoy the fromagerie is to stay in the “gite,” which is French for a holiday home for rent. Located on the 32-acre goat farm along the Touchet River, the gite is a beautifully handcrafted farm house built by the owners.
Each season offers exceptional opportunities to savor life on the farm and surrounding region. In spring, baby lambs, kid goats and newly hatched chicks and ducklings populate the farm; new piglets await the first whey from cheese production. In summer, milking and cheese-making are in high production, with the opportunity to splash, fish and swim in the river.
You can pick seasonal veggies with Erin Horan who farms Nourish Gardens, the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) garden and the refrigerator is always stocked with products from the farm: fresh milk, eggs, cheeses, butter, meats, usually port-cured bacon or sausages, fresh coffee beans and good bread.
