We first got into the French Alpine Dairy goats for milk for our own
use, which led to the making of Kefir, yogurts and we now are learning
the art of cheese making and Carol also makes all different varieties of
Goat Milk Soaps which are available
We love all of our goats and spend time with them daily. Goats make wonderful pets and companions, but they are a herd animal so you cannot have just one, you need two to have happy goats, just one can and usually does become very depressed and destructive.
We are CAE negative and our testing is done by Biotracking.
Meet our goats.
