Getting the goat...

The lovely people at St Helen's Farm have sent us a hamper brim full of goat's milk and goat's milk products - including cheese and yoghurt and butter and, of course, milk in manifold variations (skimmed, semi-skimmed and so on).

I hadn't realised until I did a little online research that they're based at Seaton Ross in East Yorkshire. I used to have a Saturday job there, many - many - moons ago. At Seaton Ross, that is. It had nothing to do with goats. It involved pheasants. I was a bush-beater. Sounds alarming, I agree. And in a way, it is. My defence is it was all a long, long time ago.

Anyway, St Helen's Farm is a goat farm and dairy set in more than 500 acres in the Vale of York. It was established in 1998 to cater for people with an intolerance of cow's milk, a function it still fulfils.

This short film will tell you a little about the history of the farm and how they look after their goats and make the fresh milk, butter, yogurt and cheese that are distributed to supermarkets throughout the UK every day.



In the meantime, we're doing the most delicious taste test. Follow me on Twitter (@dotterel) to find out how we get on.
