We have a limited number of goat shares available for sale, as of July 1, 2018.
British Guernsey Goats, a rare heritage breed from the Isle of Guernsey provide exceptional milk for our goat share. Guernsey goats have friendly dispositions and are a pleasure to work with. Their milk is creamier than standard dairy goat breeds. Their milk is mild, with a pleasant fresh taste. We hand milk our goats. Our goats obtain most of their food from grazing on pasture and eating hay; they also sometimes eat soy-free, certified organic grain to ensure adequate mineral consumption.
One goat share costs $21; when you no longer need this share, you may sell it back to us for $21. The board for each share is $21 per month. Share owners typically receive about one quart of goat milk for each share that they own.

Goat Cheese Share
We'll turn your goat milk into a variety of delicious hand-crafted cheeses. You'll pick up a variety of cheeses once a month, at the end of each month. Here's how it works: Buy one goat milk share, pay the monthly boarding fee, and also pay $22 per month for cheese processing. In a typical month you'll get 4-5 ounces chevre, 4-5 ounces goat feta, 4-5 ounces goat's milk caerphilly (a hard cheese), 4-5 ounces Ste-Maure (a pyramid-shaped French cheese that is dusted in vegetable ash and mold-ripened), and perhaps another cheese. All the cheeses are raw and made with live active cultures in the traditional method. This is a limited time offer that typically runs from July into sometime in October. When the cheese-making season is over, we'll buy your shares back from you, but you'll be first on the waiting list to buy cheese shares when 2019 cheese season begins.
