If you haven’t yet experienced the divine caramel goodness from The Simple Farm, now is time. Handmade in small batches from the milk of the farms’ Nubian goats, The Simple Farm’s caramel treats are made from only the best ingredients - sweet goat’s milk from their own hand milked herd, organic butter, cream and non-GMO light organic corn syrup along with fair trade Madagascar Bourbon vanilla. Their caramel story began with a visit to France, and transformed into a weekly process in which owner Lylah Ledner, her husband and a group of volunteers hand made creations three to four days a week to produce soft, buttery and creamy goat milk caramels.
Located smack dab in the middle of Scottsdale suburbia, past the freeways and busy shops, you’ll find the farm that is home to the darling dairy goats and a three-acre farm loaded with beautiful vegetable, herb and flower gardens. In 2014, their caramels gained national recognition with the Good Food Awards and are now available across the valley as well as in a variety of upscale markets in Arizona, California, New Jersey, Oregon and Washington. Besides making caramels, The Simple Farm also grows and offers a seasonal CSA program that provides an opportunity for those who haven't yet started their own gardens to enjoy a fresh bounty from their farm's gatherings. Be sure to check out their website to read more about their story and where you can pick up a simply divine treat.
