Founded in 2011 by Louisa Conrad and Lucas Farrell, Big Picture Farm is a small hillside goat dairy and farmstead confectionery and creamery located in southern Vermont. Our award-winning goat milk caramels and farmstead cheeses are made with fresh, raw, creamy goat’s milk from our herd of 46 healthy and happy, free-ranging companions. An Animal-Welfare-Approved farm, the health and happiness of our animals is the center around which our farm and farm products revolve. Our mission is to integrate agriculture and narrative in a fresh way that properly evokes the place, animals, and work in order to bring to life the exciting and unpredictable evolution of our products, farm, and lives. Each caramel or cheese that we produce comes from a place, a specific place, and is made from the milk of a specific animal, eating specific flowers and leaves and plants at a specific time of year. Our goal is spelled out in our name: to provide our customers with the rich context surrounding our products (aka “the big picture”). We therefore invite you to meet and get to know all of our goats and to follow us through the seasons. Treat yourself or a friend to some of our delicious products! Or follow us on our Instagram @bigpicturefarm. Most of all, thank you for supporting our farm and mission!!! We couldn’t do any of this without you!
Yours in goats,
