Friday, 11/11: Hickory Nut Farm, Lee, NH artisanal goat cheese tasting. The goat milk cheeses are made from the ground up, literally. The hay and grains that feed the goats are selected and blended according to our standards and experience. As a reward of good treatment and careful feeding, their milk has excellent nutritional value, producing varied textures and subtle flavor profiles; just what the meaning of the word artisanal is all about.
