The utterly idyllic Baetje farmhouse will soon hold a chef's demo kitchen on the second floor.
Gut Check recently dropped by Baetje Farms (8932 Jackson School Road, Bloomsdale, MO; 573-483-9021) in southeast Missouri to see how owners Steve and Veronica Baetje and their team create its artisan goat cheeses. The farm's pastoral property and intricate production processes are so engaging to experience that we've chosen to share both in photo format. Page through to get a taste of what it's like to visit Baetje Farms.

"Heidi goats," as Veronica Baetje calls them, are impossibly adorable.
