snack time in the barn

If it's too blustery for a walk, we bring the browse to them.
Fresh trees in February - perfect winter snacking.  Happy girls!

winter walk

video by Renee W.

Goats love their winter walks in the snow - Sweet Land Blue Willow, Ruby, Tiger Lily and their kids.  Tiger Lily looks so much like her dam Trillium and her funny dancing-walk just like Trillium's.  Beautiful goats!

Oh the weather outside is frightful....

.... But warm straw is so delightful.  And since we've no place to go, 
Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow.

Merry Christmas!








goats milk soaps


2017 Christmas Update:  New farmstead soaps for sale in the 
Old Barn Mercantile (Evergreen View Farm, Lowville NY)

The farm's lovely milking girls provide us with beautiful milk for skin-nourishing soaps.  Excited to introduce new scents and beneficial ingredients this season; including essential oil bars, men's bars, and luxury shea butter bars.  A few of my favorites this season include: "heirloom lilac" with sweet almond oil, "sweet orange + spicy ginger" with essential oils"; root beer float" (men's bar); and "pomegranate + orange" shea butter bar.

Happy Christmas 2017

One of the "outtakes".  After Caprice jumps off and Hudson flashing the camera.  Echo, of course is perfect.  Taking pictures with animals - never boring.

Update: Tula, Tashi, Fiona

Such a sweet bunch of doelings.  Update from Colleen:

They are lovely goats and they are so much fun.  They love their walks but sometimes lag behind when distracted by grass/leaves!  Sending a video of Tashi flying!  They are acrobats!  They bring us a lot of joy.  Thank you.
