====== What's New?
Good morning, everyone:
We are now in the peak time for our milk production since most of the older kids no longer need to drink milk. We still have 70 kids ready to go to good homes as pets, and to other farmers for their breeding programs. It's time for cheese-making since we have extra milk....
Happy cheese-making this week... we have goat milk mozzarella (regular and smoked), cottage cheese, chevre, sour cream cheese (kefir cheese).... See our product list online....
Community Support Agriculture (Products from Local Farmers):
- New products from a local certified kitchen...> We've tried all the products from "Wise Goat Organics" - their sauerkraut is the best. We know where they get their organic veggies, and we know how clean the owner's processing is - and we just can't stop eat their sauerkraut... tasty!!! They also make all kinds of organic bone broth....
Now you can order their products from our online store for delivery to all our CSA and Farmer's Market locations. Check out their website: https://wisegoatorganics.com/?post_type=product
- Good news for dog and cat owners!! We are so lucky to have Mary Voss as one of our goat milk club members. She and her husband retired from a high-tech company and own a small factory here locally. They make RAW meat food for dogs and cats. They get meat from a local pasture-raised cow farm, and pack it raw and fresh. We tried their products - our dogs and cats are crazy about them!!! They all love it.... Please check out their website for more information, and to find out why RAW meat is best for your pets....
Now you can order their products from our online store for delivery to all our CSA and Farmer's Market locations. Their website: greenTripe.com
