Dairy Goats

 

We have several different breeds of dairy goats on our farm, producing milk seasonally from April through September. We love seeing the unique qualities of each goat breed expressed in our herd. We are committed to the biosecurity of our herd; we test for CAE, CL, and Johne’s disease annually.

Unlike on larger farms, we do not cull aged does. Each of our milking does will be retired after her years of service, and will live out the rest of her life on our farm, receiving the same quality of care that she received as a productive doe.

Chevon

Chevon is the tender, flavorful meat of a goat processed between the ages of 6 months and 9 months. It has a slightly gamey taste, more mild than that of lamb. Goat meat is enjoyed by people in virtually all parts of the world, and is growing in popularity in the United States. Goat meat is low in fat, and offers a relatively sustainable alternative to other red meats. For the reasons listed here, we no longer market our goat kids as pets, and instead retain them on our farm to raise for meat, where we can ensure that they are receiving high quality care from beginning to end.
