Baby goats in denim


Our goats are kidding – seriously that is what they call it when goats have babies – and since there have been some cold nights our farm manager made them blankets – our grandkids love the idea – are they cute or what? Adorable and we hold and handle them a lot so that they are very domesticated and used to people and children – then we donate them to children’s summer camps and so the cycle continues. Here I am holding one of the babies in her denim outfit. Soft and sweet. And in a few weeks we will be visiting a breeder who has sheep – to meet some of the ewes who are giving birth – and once weaned we will bring back two female baby lambs to rear at The Little Farm – and eventually we will bring in a ram and our pregnant sheep will have babies – and we will have sheeps milk! I am looking forward to making sheep’s milk cheese – for the first time at The Little Farm – one gallon of goats milk makes one pound of cheese but only half a gallon of sheep’s milk is needed to make the same amount. So this summer we will be able to offer both sheep’s and goat’s cheese. We are excited!
