Goat Cheese from The Cheese Room

It excites Michael and I that goats and goat cheese are becoming a bit more popular.  When time permits I like to read about goats and cheese and find new places that tout wonderful cheeses - especially goat cheese.


England's LaFaromagerie has the coolest cheese room.  It lets you explore cheese from at least eleven countries and from Buffalo, Cow, Sheep or Goat.  Here's a bit of goat cheese trivia - under the Goat heading - there are about 76 different kinds of goat cheese (were you in the UK) to try.

Those 76 different kinds of goat cheese seem to validate the demand and thus the goat dairy industry is growing. Read here - Demand for Goat Cheese Spurs on Goat Dairies.

It's all just wonderful in my opinion.

Cinderella Lost Her Shoe





. . . and we found it at the farm {The Simple Farm} in and amongst the pumpkins and herbs.

Actually, one of the dearest friends and farm volunteers, Lynne, started making these adorable 'succulent' shoe gifts and Sarah and I happened to be the first two recipients of them.  I love it and think it's a great gift idea!
