~ Merry Christmas & Happy New Year ~

Merry & Bright

When snow falls and the temperature turns arctic, the barn is a welcome shelter on a long winter's night.  When the sunshine peeks out, the herd loves their daily walk to frisk and frolic.  Still, they are always happy to return to the cozy barn and plentiful hay feeders.

Christmas cupcakes

holiday-themed cupcakes w/ black pepper + cardamom = spicy!

The milking girls are giving lots of milk right now, providing goat's milk butter for Christmas baking.  This special cupcake is spiced with cardamom & black pepper, and pairs perfectly with goat cheese frosting.  The girls always enjoy their treat of Winter Luxury pumpkin rind & seeds after the pumpkin is roasted.

Update: Cala's Wethers

Cala's sweet wethers have a new home with a wonderful girl and her family. Sophia and her older sister sold homemade cupcakes to raise all the money to buy the goats, hay, supplies, etc!  She writes: Joshua and Cooper are doing great. We love them so much. Thank you for letting us buy them.  Here they are exploring their new home :)
