Nestled between the Tug Hill Plateau and the Adirondacks Mountains, tucked within the Black River Valley you will find Hidden Pastures Dairy. This quaint little goat farm is run by the husband and wife team of Andrew and Blake Place. The Place family built their goat dairy farm from an idle dairy farm parcel. They worked day in and day out to create a parlor, milkhouse and create the set up needed to milk their goats. The farm is a Grade A dairy facility and is able to ship milk to neighboring creameries.
In 2012 Blake started dabbling with the idea of making goat milk ice cream and in the Spring of 2018 Hidden Pastures Dairy launched their Goat Milk Gelato product using their farm fresh goat milk!
The dairy has a small
farm store on site which carries local products and will be a part of the
upcoming Lewis County Cuisine Trail. Store is open daily.
