"I love knowing I am going to see them each week. Regardless of if I am tired or stressed, it has to happen, and is a welcome routine."

Milkmaid Malory

"Milking is the mental and emotional rejuvenation I need to get me through the rest of the week."

Milkmaid Molly

"I've talked and thought a lot about animal ethics in the past year, and I think that working with animals is one of the best ways in which to truly understand that relationship." 

Barter

for Milk

Give one, two-hour shift a week for a quart of creamy dream milk (or bar of soap) between May & Dec. Meet new people and get to know the seasonal life of the herd.

Make Soap & Cheese

Take part in cheesemaking or soapmaking! Learn a new craft, and take home a handful of handmade soap or cheese. 

Gain Farming

Experience

Learn the inner-workings of small-scale woodland goat dairy. We invite you to learn and participate in all aspects of production. 

 

Hang out with the Herd

Enjoy getting to know each quirky momma on the milking stand. Be the first to  bond with the floppy-eared kids. Acceptance by the herd is the true reward.
