A Milking We Shall Go!

I finally am getting around to starting a blog to show off our lovely Nubian dairy goats and our farm.

At the moment we have 7 does, 2 doelings, and 8 kids. Out of the 8 that were pregnant 5 have kidded and 4 are in milk which is really exciting.

We have repurposed an unused pole-building into a nice milking parlor with 2 stanchions. As always there is more work to be done, and the minute I think we have accomplished a task I start to think of ways to improve said task. It drives me nuts! But at least we are moving forward.

I'll write more later about our farm's history and the plans for the future; but for now please enjoy the pictures.
