Now that we have two lactating goats, everyone here on the farm has had a chance to learn how to express milk. Oliver and I learned together, each taking on one teat. We managed to add a little milk to the bucket before Serio ran out of grain and became restless.
We have been enjoying the fresh milk and keep finding new ways to consume it. Below you can see Pearl eating some delicious goat cheese that Grammy and Glenn made over the weekend. Oliver loves to have his daily glass of goat milk. It tastes so much better than milk from the store.
This morning we decided to make yogurt. First, Glenn collected a couple of quarts from Leche. We measured out the proper amount.
My next goal is to try to make soap for The Beneficial Bee skin care line. We have several jars of frozen milk waiting for the moment when we decide to take on that challenge. Thank you to Serio and Leche for providing us with all of this beautiful milk!
