Vermont's Big Picture Farm distinguishes itself by creating its milk caramels with milk from goats rather than cows. While the caramel from creamy goat's milk produces a unique flavor base on its own, Big Picture Farm enriches the sweets with gourmet flavor options like Cocoa Latte, Brown Butter Bourbon and Wild Chocolate Mint. These sophisticated varieties add new interest to traditional milk caramel products.
Most consumers are familiar with seeing goat cheese in the aisles of supermarkets, but alternative dairy products from goats and sheep are also beginning to appear as the feature ingredients in snack, dessert and beverage products. In comparison to cow's milk, goat's milk is a richer source of vitamins and minerals, easier to digest and appeals to consumers who seek out dairy products with a greater emphasis on health and sustainability.
