    Great article! I just purchased a goat cheese sampler from the Baton Rouge farmers market. It’s quite unique and very delicious. I’m so glad that Louisiana is becoming a great place to find products like the ones Ms. Barras is producing.

      Good to hear! It’s always great to meet the local farmers and artisans behind our favorite foods. Wanda really puts her heart and soul into her goat cheese!

      Isn’t goat cheese awesome? This farm visit has inspired me to experiment with some herbal flavors. The cracked pepper went so well with the mild goat cheese.

    That cheese looks amaze! Crazy how much work goes into making it!

      Seriously! Making goat cheese on a small farm is pretty complicated. It was great to see a family working together to make it happen.

    What an interesting tour. It is rare to meet the goats you eat the cheese directly from. What a cool trip you went on!

      Thanks! Yes, road tripping through Cajun Country was a lot of fun. The best part was the friendliness of the locals 🙂

    Now, this is actually pretty interesting! I grew up on a dairy farm, but my dad just sold milk and eggs, and never tried cheese making.

    The Jersey cow is adorable, by the way! They make the best milk (well, the female ones, not the guy in the photo) and Jersey cream is seen as a kind of luxury in the UK.

    I think I’ll have to drop by whenever I make it to Louisiana – and do the tasting tour for sure. If I opted for the regular tour, I may well try and run off with some of the cheese, and that little rat terrier looks like he doesn’t suffer thieves lightly…

      Definitely stop by this farm when you visit Cajun Country! The rat terrier took his job as sheep herder very seriously– fortunately he is tiny so he can’t do much harm 🙂
