The Full Jar
Blue Heron Farm in Field Store, TX (about 45 miles NW of Houston) is a “small scale, humane, and thoughtful” goat dairy. Two “city kids turned farmers,” Lisa and Christian Seger are the owner-operators, and their Cajeta has been a staple in our retail shop in Austin, TX for years. Utilizing strictly sustainable agricultural principles - no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides – animals (goats, hogs & poultry) pasture-graze on natural flora and enjoy access to comfy shelter. Essentially dulce de leche, cajeta is a Mexican-style caramel made from pure goat’s milk, cooked slow-n-low for 24-48 hours – until the rich caramel color & flavors emerge. This local goat milk caramel is great on cheese, fruit, desserts (ice cream!), popcorn, in your morning coffee, or dunking a wedge of cheese straight into the jar – we won’t judge!
