Steve Reid is co-founder and co-owner of Fat Toad Farm. He is a SUPER busy guy but I was lucky enough to snag some of his time to answer a few questions about being a dad, grandpa and overall awesome dude. If you are ever lucky enough to meet him in person, you’ll find out very quickly he has a big heart, a great sense of humor and a serious love of craft beer!
What is your favorite flavor of Fat Toad Farm Goat’s Milk Caramel Sauce?
My favorite flavor is Vanilla Bean! If it is in one of our Fat Toad Farm squeeze bottles, I’ll put it on almost anything!
What is one of your favorite things about being a dad?
One of my favorite things about being a dad is getting to share a meal, a beer or whatever with each of my 4 kids, Hannah, Nick, Josey and Calley — one on one — now and then.
(Pictured below: Steve and his favorite son Nick!)
What is one of your favorite things about being a grandpa (or Boppa!)?
One of the coolest things about being a grandfather is being able to quite regularly spend time with all 4 of the rug rats.
(Pictured below: Grandsons Driscoll & Bailey helping with a quick dump run!)
Any special plans for Father’s Day?
Brunch with the extended family crew and hopefully no work!
Any advice for new dads?
Carpe Diem. (so little time; so many things to do with little kids)
We had a great several day visit from the ever-entertaining and positive Fedex crew this spring who put together this short clip about our farm and the goat’s milk caramel that we have become known for over the years. We were SSOO excited to receive the Fedex Small Business grant out of 5,000 businesses across the nation! Have fun watching this video to see how our caramel is made and of course catch some goat cameos! Watch here!
