join the milking team

No experience necessary--just a passion for animals, food, and agriculture; a bit of grit; and your own transportation. This small operation relies on many good hearts and hands. Consider joining us!

"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."

Malory M.

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

Molly V

"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."

for Milk
or Soap

Give one morning a week for a quart of creamy dream milk, May-Aug or Sept-Dec. We milk in the mornings and complete other chores in the evening, including herding the goats back from that day's pasture. Shorter Saturday and Sunday afternoon shifts also available.

Make Soap & Cheese

We have monthly cheesemaking opportunities and seasonal soapmaking days. Choose to help with one of these events, learn the craft, and take home a handful of handmade soap or cheese in exchange.

Gain Farming

Experience

Take ownership of one aspect of goat-raising, such as nutrition, pasture management, milk sanitation, parasites, breeding, or kidding--contribute your ideas to the daily operations. Get school credit or life credit.

Hang out with the Herd

Enjoy getting to know each quirky momma on the milking stand. Be the first to  bond with each year's crop of floppy-eared kids--acceptance by the herd is the real reward.
