In all their years of making chocolate, Goosnow Farms had not found milk that was up to their flavor standards, but that changed when they discovered Organic West. Their facility for making dry milk powder is state-of-the-art and results in an exceptionally flavorful milk chocolate.
This is a dark milk bar, meaning there’s less milk than you’d in find mass market milk chocolate bars. Their goal, as always, is to allow the flavors of the cacao to still be apparent. In this case the unique flavors of our Dominican Republic Zorzal Communitario cacao are balanced with rich, creamy milk. This is a great bar to pair with their Brown Butter bar, which is also made with Zorzal cacao and features fresh Jersey Cream butter from High Lawn Farms dairy.
Organic West sources from family run dairies on the west coast. All the cows are pasture raised, and their milk is always antibiotic, GMO and rBST free. They buy milk on a regular basis at a stable price, which allows farmers to plan long term. They’re able to do this because their facility allows them to turn the milk into many products, including the nonfat dry milk powder Goodnow uses in this bar.
