About Our Farm

Buster & Bella's Specialty Co. was founded in 2020 in the beautiful foothills of Vermont's Green Mountains, in a small town called Londonderry, Vermont. It began as a dream over a decade ago in 2011, when Aden Mott and Jon Restivo set about realizing their vision of creating delicious foods using simple, high-quality ingredients - lovingly produced on their farm.

Back then, Aden and Jon were just starting out on a small farm in Foster, Rhode Island. They named their home Legend's Creek Farm after their first Australian Shepherd, Legend, and began raising dairy goats, practicing making cheese and all sorts of delightful foods. They quickly realized that the home they had chosen could never receive regulatory approval to produce the foods they wanted, so they relocated to a larger, more suitable property in Foster, Rhode Island in 2014.

As they worked toward receiving approval from the state to start making food, they began making Goat Milk Soap and other personal care products under the Legend's Creek brand name. Their commitment to using only the best ingredients to make simple, high-quality products proved to be extremely successful. They continued working on trying to find a way to bring that same level of dedication and transparency to producing foods, while Legend's Creek grew a world-wide base of loyal customers that shared their priorities.

They faced a few hurdles along the way, mostly related to Rhode Island's anti-business regulations, and after years of fighting the State in legal battles were ultimately forced to start looking for alternative paths to realize their dream. In 2020, a larger company based out of Idaho offered to acquire the Legend's Creek brand, and Jon and Aden began looking for a new home in a different state.

After a lot of searching they finally found a perfect home in Londonderry, Vermont. Their new home was built in the early 1800's, on an over 150-acre piece of land. Originally used for sheep, the land had since become overgrown. They quickly set about restoring the property's historic barns and pastures, following old stone walls through the woods to reveal a stunning landscape, perfectly suited for the happy, bouncing goats they had been raising for years.

They decided that it was only appropriate to name their new company after their two other Australian Shepherds: Buster and Bella. For the rest of 2020 and most of 2021 they set about rebuilding everything they had left behind, more motivated than ever to realizing their dream. In a matter of months the State of Vermont granted all of the approvals they needed to start making food, and Aden and Jon set about perfecting their recipes for Goat Milk Fudge while dreaming about the amazing products they can't wait to share over the months and years to come.
