So inside the pretty glass doors, is a bounty of goodness. Taste testing in encouraged! I tasted it all, Chevre, the soft goat cheese, Havarti the hard cheese that I was only familiar with until my visit, and the most yummy fudge made from goats milk! They have several varieties of Chevre and I selected the 3 that I knew would pair well with my favorite wines, Strawberry Jalapeno, Shiraz Berry and Lavender Pepper. There was no way that I was leaving without the Peanut Butter Chocolate fudge, so creamy and fresh! We bought 2 bars of soap, that smell of fields of lavender.
