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!

farmstead cheese

Ash ripened aged goat cheese.  I'm addicted to this stuff.  Milk production is steady so the cheese cellar is being put to good use.

Rest in Peace sweet Mizi.  She recently died at age 11, and will be missed.  She was owned by Sugar Moon Farm in Vermont, Old Mountain Farm & Feather and Scale Farm in Maine.  An amazing dairy goat, she passed on solid dairy characteristics in so many of her progeny in the Northeast.  She is g-dam to one of our favorite does, Calabash, several of whom's offspring we have also retained.  She had a great life with people who truly loved and cared for her.  Her genetics live on.

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!

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.
