Join Margo for a tour and lunch at Happy Acres Goat Farm.
Set in the rolling hills of Templeton, Happy Acres is a working dairy run by 4 women and their families. Their herd comprises 4 unique breeds and more then 200 goats. The goat milk, which is all natural and hormone-free, has the high-butterfat content essential to the production of the farm’s line of cheeses, ice creams, lotions, and soaps. This is a hands-on tour—you’ll have the opportunity to milk goats and make cheese.
Also catch Margo's two demonstrations at Chef Central: Cooking and Pairing with Local Beers
and The Art of the Oyster.
