Sarah and Ginger

This was Sarah's first milking experience with her goat. She, I and the stand all got pretty moisturized, if you know what I mean, but she got the hang of it and is now old hand. She milks her when they come out several times a week, and I milk her the few days she can't be here so her supply doesn't dry up.


  1. So you milk indoors? I am surprised to see that. Milking does take some getting used to, but once you've got it, you've got it. Mmmmmm Raw Milk....

  2. Where you milk makes a big difference in flavor. The way our house is set up, we can easily accomodate milking in the basement kitchen, as it isn't used for a whole lot. It makes it easier to keep everything clean and cool as well. We are planning on building an actual milking parlor sometime in the next couple years as we grow our herd.


I welcome hospitable, intelligent discussion. I do not welcome mean-spirited comments. Though they are "moderated" I post pretty much everything, with a very, very small exception-that being spam and those who aim to hurts others intentionally. I'd love hear what you have to say, otherwise!
