We did fit in a little bit of weeding once the sun came out. We also learned what kind of things a goat will eat... Most green things, really! The Sullivan's have several different breeds, each with their own dispositions and milk qualities. The goats each had names- celestial or floral mostly. Tim said he is not allowed to name them after Star Trek characters. I have no idea how they keep track of them all!
One of my favorite parts of Sullivan's Pond cheese is the all natural packaging. Fig leaves, chestnut leaves and corn husks are all an essential part of the experience. One of the jobs we took on was harvesting chestnut and fig leaves for future use.

The farm is an idyllic setting and the Sullivan's are the most wonderful people. We hope you can join us on a workday there sometime soon. We are definitely going back. If you want to try their cheese (as you should), it is available at the South of the James market, as well as at Whole Foods and Ellwood Thompson.
