Valley View Farm is a new sort of 'American Dream' where the Mulhollands have taken their love of the farm and created a business that has brought them back to basics. They have developed the farm from what was once a handful of Nubian goats to a herd of over 60. Their original chevre has blossomed to a variety of cheeses, such as feta, Harmony (a combination of goat and cow milk), Essex (soft-ripened cow's milk cheese), and New Meadows (a soft-ripened camembert style goat cheese).
They have expanded beyond dairy to produce maple syrup, honey, eggs, and hay. Keeping it all in the family, Elizabeth's mom, Mary Brown, is as much a part of the operation as anyone and Elizabeth's and Peter's two sons are equally essential, gaining a type of hands-on education that cannot be learned in the classroom. Tucked just outside the reaches of Boston's urban sprawl, Valley View Farm has helped revive the heart of the Topsfield community.
