Saturday April 18th was Raw Milk Cheese Appreciation Day and I celebrated with my first visit to Prairie Fruits Farm and Creamery in Champagne-Urbana. From mid-March through April, Prairie Fruits Farm hosts an open house and pancake breakfast. We drank luscious goat milk hot chocolate, ate a triple stack of fluffy buttermilk pancakes, and finally sampling their incredible gelato. We also got to meet the goats and visit the kids. I found the goat version of my crazy cat Chandler. He was stout and angry.
I took a lot of pictures. There were a lot of goats. I’m working on a video featuring baby goats running buck wild.
