Behind the Scenes: Dancing Goats Dairy

Twenty six year old Erin Bligh is most definitely an old soul. She’s the sort of lady who prioritizes the following, though not necessarily in this order: her goat dairy; beach living over city life; homesteading all things food; vintage riding pants and wool sweaters; found or salvaged furniture and quilted Ball jars. She’s most definitely our kind of lady. Erin runs Dancing Goat Dairy, a small, goat dairy that specializes in artisanal, farmstead cheese, confections and soaps, near...

It's no secret that we take our food very seriously around here. And it's our firm belief that the cornerstone to making waves in the kitchen is first being able to execute a really great sandwich.

With images from Sharon Radisch, we're going behind the scenes...

Years and years ago, I used to paint like a fiend. If I wasn't pre-occupied with some life event, you could usually find me in my bedroom, paintbrush in hand.

With photos from Allison Mannella, we've been privy to a beautiful behind the scenes glimpse at her process.
