St Helen's Farm: It's time to give Goats a Go!

St Helen's Farm and Purple Cow PR kindly sent me a lovely hamper of goats milk goodies* and when they say hamper, I mean super crazy generous hamper; with a lovely TY teddy to boot.

Meet Goatee, my new and amazing TY teddy. When I was younger, every time my mum went away on business she would come home with a new TY teddy for and my sister so when I saw Goatee, I actually squealed with excitement. Thank you so much St Helen's Farm, I love it. I also really love the packaging of the products, friendly goat and bright colours really do catch your eye on the supermarket shelves, perfect.

Now onto the products, which included skimmed, semi-skimmed and whole milk, yoghurt, fat free yoghurt, small pots of flavour yoghurts, goats butter, spreadable cheese and two block cheeses, mature and mild.  I was already a fan of a couple of the products; the milk has been in my tea for months and goats butter has graced my butter dish for a very long time. I don't think I could ever go back to normal butter and milk. A lot of people have noticed that they can't digest dairy very well and I'll tell you now, goats milk and the rest of the products are really for you. I've not felt any IBS symptoms since switching completely and this is an absolute miracle for me. I've suffered with stress related IBS for a good few years but I have noticed that dairy and gluten do have an impact on it also; goats milk hasn't flared me up at all so here's to staying in my fridge.

The yoghurts have been a welcome surprise, especially the lemon yoghurt, which tastes exactly like a lemon cheesecake, YESSSSS. My least favourite had to be the large pots of yoghurt but that's just down to not really being a yoghurt fan. There is an unusual taste but the health benefits will outway to cons of this product for a yoghurt fan. On the other hand, the cheeses are an absolute dream. You can't beat cheese and crackers, can you? Goats cheese does have a slight milder taste than cows cheese, but the mature cheese in this bunch packs the punch you're after.

All in all, I really think you should give it a go, especially if you have noticed that you might have a slight intolerance to dairy; or try it and see if you notice a difference in your body! 

Have you ever tried St Helen's Farm goats milk and dairy products?


  1. This sounds really nice. I've never actually tried goats milk but dairy doesn't tend to sit well with me at all!
