Our kid count is up to 87, and more kids means more mammas. It’s about time we move back our barrier in the barn to make room for the milkers.

Almost half of our girls have freshened and on Friday we tasted the first milk of the season! Margot predicts the ladies will have a productive year. Our cheese makers are using this first batch of milk to make some delicious Machester.

Of course, more kids means more kid piles. And who doesn’t love a good kid pile?

MOVING HAY

Our supply of first cutting hay was running short in the main barn (where kidding and milking take place), so taking advantage of the complete lack of snow, we pulled the hay elevator out of storage and moved a few hundred bales from the back barn.

We recently added four additional headlocks to our milking parlor, making the parlor capacity EIGHTEEN goats! Right now we are milking 76 goats… with more to come! Here is a photo of Margot enjoying the efficient new setup.
