Goats

We had a brief stint in owning and milking goats during the summer of 2015, when I was pregnant with lynniebaby #3. We wanted to be able to provide our family with all the deliciously healthy milk we would ever need. After much deliberation, we decided on Nubians, mostly because of their size and milk production/ quality. My husband was raised on goats milk as a child. His babysitter was an Amish lady who nurtured all of her many children in much the same way as we did, with raw goat milk. So we knew that this was the route we wanted to go. Unfortunately, between both mom and dad working full time and raising three kiddos, we just ran out of time to spend with the goats. So we had to send them to another home, where they could have the love and attention they needed to thrive.

Now, 2 years later, we are finally at the point in our lives where we can properly raise milk goats in an environment where they can have all the love and care they could ever possibly need. And all of us are very excited to make this dream of ours a reality. We will be starting our new goat adventure with Nigerian Dwarf goats. This is the very beginning stages of the development of our new goat farm.  While we have very humble beginnings, we hope to advance out and be able to obtain a larger barn and longer fencing a few years down the road. What we have now will do just well. I know the goats will be happy and safe in our current barn and pasture, so I do not hesitate to bring them home once we find the right fit for our family.

We know the type of work we will be getting into and are looking forward to every bit of it. Faith. Love. and Goats.
