Talk of the Town Farm is a small goat dairy located in Connor TWP, Maine. We are just north of Caribou and we are currently the only licensed goat dairy in Aroostook County. We are still growing our herd of Nubians, La Manchas and a few crosses.
Currently we offer raw goat milk. We plan to have fresh Chevre and yogurt in August. Our products can be found at the Caribou Farmers’ Market on Wednesdays 3 to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. until fall. We are also at the Bread of Life store in Presque Isle and Sleeper’s Market in Caribou.
Come taste our wonderful milk from our hard working girls!

Info about practices and milk handling:
We milk four Jersey cows, two of which are registered and from Two Loons. We feed them all organic hay and supplement their feed with a small amount of organic grain. However, we are not certified organic. We milk with a bucket milker. The milk is cooled in a fifty five gallon chiller which cools the milk very quickly, usually within twenty to forty minutes of puttng the milk in the machine. The milk can be stored in there for a few days. We usually empty out whatever is left and clean the whole thing every two or three days. We’ve been receiving stellar test results from the state.
Our milk is available in amounts ranging from 5 to 20 gallons. Bags or buckets or another means of transportation of the milk would have to be provided.
