When asked to describe our goats, the brood kids got excited: 'The goats are awesome!' one blurted out.  She was right - they are awesome.  But their more detailed responses explain why we're so fond of these creatures.  They talk about what the goats do: 'They eat everything out of the garden', 'We can play with them', 'They'll chase us around the field'.  And they talk about what the goats make: 'milk and all the stuff we use it for like ice cream and yogurt and cheese and soap'. 

So, we - it's not just the kids! - are crazy about what the goats do and what we can do with their milk.  Our herd of Nubian dairy goats are pets that produce.

Milk Production

We milk the goats seasonally, from the time they kid in the late winter and spring until they dry off in the winter for rest and gestation.  It's work, milking every day, morning and night.  But it's worth it.  The milk is wholesome, the cheese is rich and delicious, the yogurt is a family favorite, and the frozen yogurt is delicious.  Seriously, the frozen yogurt is delicious.  When it's lightly sweetened and flavored with real fruit, even the most ardent, freaked-out goat-milk-skeptics around admit the frozen yogurt is delicious.
