DAIRY GOATS >>

MILK, CREAM & CHEESE OH MY​>>

Adding Dairy Goats to our farm was bound to happen after working so closely with friends and their beautiful herds over the past few years. We have bred Anglo Nubians, Toggenburgs, British Alpines and Saanens over the last few years. But we have decided to drop our numbers right back recently to concentrate more fully on the Dwarfs and the gardens so now just run a small mixed herd. We sell on the doe kids and grow out most of the wethers on their mums to process for our family freezer once they are old enough. Goat meat is delicious and  very under rated.

We drink the creamy milk, make basic cheeses too when time permits and I'm looking forward to trying my hand at soap making.

These elegant finely tuned 'Ferrari's' of the goat world require a lot more feed and supplements than our minis and careful management as they are high production. They can provide anywhere between 1.5 to 8 ltrs of milk a day (some individuals can provide even more than that each day with some Saanens recording 10 ltrs a day)! They are incredibly sweet natured loving animals that are eager to please and easy to either hand milk or pop on the machine. They love routine, lucerne hay and a high protein grain mix of at least 14% protein. Laukes goat mix makes them quite happy here. They can be a bit  fussy and more delicate in cold wet weather than the minis.
