Cheese and Dairy Lovers Paradise – Goat Dairy Orange Hill Nature Ranch

If you are into organic feta cheese or diary products, then the place to be is Goat Dairy Orange Hill Nature Ranch, which is rich in history as it is in diary. The Ranch was founded in 1647 by dutch settlers who had turned it into a sugar plantation, and from that time until present has changed owners, due to island constantly changing of colonial masters for more than 300 years. Thus causing the plantation to be the home to many different persons, including the French governor, where the remains of his family still rest on the hill. The plantation went from sugar-cane to coconut to a cow farm. Today, it is run by a sweet soft-spoken, friendly lady – Josefa Patience, who makes the most delicious and delightful goat milk products. It is home to many different types of goats, a Tobago mix of crossbreeds such as British Alpine, Saanen, Toggenburg, and Anglo Nubian, as well as dogs, cats and other animals. She makes organic feta cheese, quark, cream cheese and yogurts from the goats milk, fruit yogurt from the cows milk and whey (used in baking). These products are sold supermarkets across Tobago under the Orange Hill Nature Ranch Brand. Part of what is left of the sugar factory has become a small diary and a rustic wooden house with lots of glass windows has been erected on top of what remains of the old ruin walls. So if you are ever in Tobago, or you want to purchase some of cheese and dairy products or want a tour of the estate. Call Josefa Patience (868) 660-7761, or email her at patience@tstt.net.tt, or log onto her website at http://www.goatdiary-tobago.com or facebook page Goat Dairy Orange Hill Nature Ranch Tobago.
