This week, meet Dr. Janet Smith of Borgman's Dairy Farm.
Borgman's Dairy is a Grade A farmstead goat milk dairy located in Johnson County, Missouri. It was established in 1935 by the current owner's grandmother. Current owner Dr. Janet Smith took over operations in 2006.
Borgman's Dairy primarily produces goat milk products, but is expanding to include goat meat in 2019. Dr. Smith says, "Our goat milk caramel sauce and goat cheese cheesecakes are customer favorites. We deliver to farmer's markets, grocery stores and restaurants. We have recently started to sell our products at the Black Sheep market by KU Med."
Dr. Smith shares her approach to operating a dairy farm and caring for her herd of goats.
"We believe that the best way to make great cheese is to start with great milk," Dr. Smith says. "We control the entire process from breeding to delivery of our product. This is the only way we can guarantee what the animals eat and drink and the quality of the finished product."
Looking ahead to 2019, Borgman's Dairy Farm will begin selling goat milk cheddar cheese, gouda, while increasing sales of chevre and feta. Dr. Smith will bring goat's milk dairy products for sale at the Farm + Market wine and food event.
RSVP to secure a seat today. Meet your local farmer, taste local dairy prepared in several dishes by chef Pete Dulin, learn how Fence Stile owner-winemaker Shriti Plimpton paired dishes with wine, and take some some wine and fresh dairy products.
