Ideas about the ideal number of goats for micro dairy?

Posted on October 23, 2010 at 8:38am 9 Comments

Hello all! After a summer of giving away lots of delicious chevre and cajeta (goat milk caramel that is from heaven) I am dreaming of saving for a small dairy operation I can get certified by the state. I don't think there is any business that requires such a huge commitment up front as cheesemaking/dairy, so while I found so much information online about how to get going with my 6 goats for farm and friend use, I can find almost nothing about next steps.

You're a couple of steps ahead of us...we're anxiously awaiting spring, so we can get some fencing in and get a move on with things!  I'm really looking forward to milking when B and Scandal arrive, and it'll be awesome to have milk on a regular basis.  We've just defrosted some milk that we bought at a market last fall and have a pot of cheese-in-progress doing its thing now, but I can't imagine there's anything better than fresh cheese from your own goats.  And cajeta....mmmmm!  I hadn't thought about making that myself, but maybe...


Best to you as spring heads our way...slowly but surely!

Thanks Hope!! I wouldn't say magic - just a lot of hard work! Trying to get a four-goat team going. It's working, just have one who doesn't seem to get it!
