It has been a long week. But tomorrow we are off the the vt cheese fest! This will be our third year at the festival, but our first time with cheese to sell. Exciting and intimidating all at once. See you there? Hope so! #vtcheesefest

Orion and her daughter Adele. 
As many of you know, Orion is our herd queen. She now has four daughters on this farm and even more granddaughters (and great grand daughters!). While she is an outstanding milker with superlative behavior on the milking platform she is also an incredibly hearty goat that never complains. She barely utters a peep, and when she does it is a heart breaking little sad cry. You very rarely hear it. Above all though she is a super mother. She comes up to the milking platform without fail in the last line each time, Adele at her side. She is a majestic lady that we owe a great debt to. We were very lucky to have Orion as our first goat.

Had the great pleasure of being photographed last week by @alissaroo for a project she’s working on. Very excited to have a family photo with both of us in it for a change! #alissaroo

After each milking the goats return to a new pasture, & in each new pasture they also get fresh water. Unfortunately Josie seems to think that we go to all this effort to provide her with a fresh swimming pool twice a day….

All that good black gold the goats make us in the winter sure does make new flower beds lush in the summer.

Last day at the food show! Fun times, but we will be ready to get back outside at the farm and take the goats on a hike up the mountain and share all the kind words their caramels have been receiving here in the city. #ffs2014
