Flower Gap Farm and Creamery is a woman owned and operated farmstead goat dairy operation owned by Margaret Aiken that specializes in boutique yogurt production. There are currently no goat dairy products on the local market that compare to the delicate taste and texture of the yogurt produced at Flower Gap Creamery. By word of mouth alone, Flower Gap Farm has established a loyal customer base. One customer recently wrote to Margaret that the yogurt “Is the most delicious, smooth addictive food for my soul and body.” It is a product that catches the customer’s eye and taste buds and leaves them craving more.
Margaret has identified the 4 core pillars of Flower Gap Farm and Creamery as:
● Contribution to the local food economy. Produce a delicious, wholesome, clean source of healthy protein that is more easily digested than traditional cow dairy products.
● Environmental sustainability - Minimize use of plastic and support sustainable packaging options. The product will be offered in repurposable/recyclable multi-serving packaging.
● Commitment to animal welfare. Herd health and happiness is of the utmost importance. The best milk comes from happy and unstressed goats.
● Dedication to regenerative agricultural practices. Farming practices that generate a net gain to the soil to nurture it to remain healthy and productive for generations to come.
