BeeWench Farm is home to a small herd of Nubian goats.
All of the goats are raised on rotation in a pasture. During milking (twice daily) each goat is brushed, her udder washed, and her hooves cleaned and thoroughly inspected. Each doe gives about 3/4 gallon of milk each day. When the kids are born we invite guests, friends and family out to the farm to watch and play with them. A baby goat romping around surpasses any television show-- we call it Goat TV!
Goats milk is naturally homogenized (meaning the fat globules are already broken down) so it’s easily digestible by even the most sensitive stomachs. Goats milk is a universal milk replacer for most other animals. Sheep, horses, cows, pigs and even puppies have all been raised successfully on goats milk. Human babies that have trouble digesting formula have been given goats milk for many years. And no, goats milk DOES NOT taste like goat!
We have raw milk herdshares available this year. In herdshares, also known as farmshares, cowshares, goatshares, etc., people buy shares of a milking animal or herd, and pay the farmer to care for the animals and milk them. As owners, the shareholders are entitled to the milk from their own animals. If you'd like to be a herdshare member, please choose your share size and complete the check-out process below.
