“Baetje Farms Goat Dairy is located on a historic farm in Bloomsdale, Mo., about 50 miles south of St. Louis and on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest.

The dairy is owned by Steve and Veronica Baetje, who have been tending goats and making cheese for more than 10 years.

“We’ve had goats since 1998, but started commercially processing cheese in 2007,” Steve Baetje said. “We were educated at the Vermont Institute for Artisan Cheese; they had a lot of courses specifically for making different cheeses…”

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
