Sweet Cows Make Sweet Chocolate

Sweet Cows Make Sweet Chocolate


Valentine’s Day may have passed, but it is never too late to enjoy a good piece of chocolate. Thorncrest Farm and Creamery is known for creating some of the best chocolate in Connecticut. What is their secret?

Believe it or not, it’s the cows.

Yes, you. Thorncrest harvests their own hay and pastures their cows, taking them out of the barn and into the fields. The hay that they consume is high quality, and most importantly, sweet. With this natural sugar coursing through their bodies, the cows are able to produce Thorncrest Farm and Creamery’s pure, sweet, signature milk.

The other basic ingredients, such as cream and butter, are also produced fresh on the farm. The goodies found inside many of the chocolates include fresh orchard fruits, garden herbs, and honey. These are blended with what Thorncrest calls “the very best cocoa beans on earth” to create one irresistible piece of chocolate. 

      See what I mean?      

Thorncrest does not stop at simply milk chocolate, however. Their mouthwatering—literally, my mouth is watering!—flavors include Hazelnut Coffee, Pumpkin, Cabernet Sauvignon Truffle, Milk Maid’s Irish Cream, Creamy Peanut Butter Milk Chocolate, Cherry Vanilla Red, Lemon Citrus Dark Chocolate, Harper’s Mango, and so many more.

Getting your hands on Milk House Chocolates is easy and affordable. You can email your order to tcfarmllc@optimum.net, call it in to 860-309-2545, or pick some up right at the creamery. While you’re there, ask about the Artisanal Cheese Making Classes that are also a hit on the farm!
