..............from Maryland's Eastern Shore!!!! I'm already loving reading some of the original usernames on here (CurdIsTheWord!!) Very creative!
We have a small herd of eight Dairy Goats - six LaManchas, two Experimentals (LaMancha/Alpine). Started with two, as the daughter's 4H project...............and now have five does and three wethers. Two of the does are in milk & have been since last spring. We didn't breed anyone this fall - we're at full capacity here, and haven't the heart to send excess kids to market (get too attached too quickly). So in order to still have milk, we're relying on our current milkers. We plan on extending their lactation as long as they are willing!
Thus far, have made many, many batches of Chevre, seasoned with different combinations of herbs, etc., and a mild feta which everyone seems to like!!
Glad I found this forum.........looks like fun, and much to learn from!!
