Thorncrest Farm

Goshen, CT
45 acres
25 milking cows

A different kind of chocolate milk

Farmer-chocolatier Kimberly Thorn crafts her Milkhouse Chocolates by meticulously matching the milk of each cows with all-natural flavorings like farm-grown mint or raspberries. The “buttery, honey, creamy caramel” milk of Daydream, for example, is featured in a line of caramels. Viola, explains Kimberly, “is my dark chocolate cow,”whose milk has a natural acidity that stands up to flavors like roasted espresso. And confections are not the only creative endeavor on the farm: Clint and son Lyndon also run their own furniture and sculpture business, while the couple’s other son, Garrett, focuses on the farm.

The family built their own barn.
Milkhouse Chocolates are only sold direct from the farm.
“Each cow’s milk tastes different so I use their milk differently,” Kimberly Thorn.
The Thorns’ furniture business is called The Open Talon.
