Farm

April 8th 2017

It’s that time of year again!!! The babies are running around like crazy getting older and bigger and about ready to move onto new homes. 


We had a big week this week. We started off with a trip to the vet to get one little guys horns removed.


My vet completely sedates them so he was still a bit out of it and as soon as he got home he got to meet his new owners. It was a surprise to one of them but boy were they happy. 

Most of the week was plagued with rain so I spent the majority of the time shoveling corn stalks in an attempt to keep a place to walk but it was a down hill battle. The barn is still a swamp. 


But the upside to this week is lots of milk!!! I’m back to milking full time!!

Yay!! Sugar and Fancy do so well on the stand and milk = ice cream, soaps and cheeses!!!


Blueberry mango goat milk ice cream yummy!! 


This week I also made some chipotle and honey/cinnamon cheeses! The kids go nuts for these and it’s so simple to make. I start with a farmers cheese base so basically bring milk to a boil and add lemon juice. I use a quart of milk and 2 tablespoons lemon it will instantly curd and then strain off the whey let it drain awhile then add you mix-ins.


Then today we had some big aspirations for the amount of chores we needed to get done. Much of that wasn’t completed but we did get some shearing done and I was beyond proud of the job I had done. 


That fleece came off as one solid piece!!!


It came off so well my son wore it as a jacket for awhile!! I think I see some felted soap in my future!!! Yay!!

Until next time
