Pardon the diversion from goats….Im really excited to announce a little art happening in my life. I have a show up in Cos Cob, CT at the Drawing Room Gallery for the next few months. The work was first shown at Anthony Greaney Gallery in Boston, the Freies Museum in Berlin and again at the Mendel Gallery in Saskatoon, SK.

In celebration of Mother’s Day we wanted to highlight one of our Moms for you:

 Meet Manhattan. Our most unintentionally fashionable mom. She always seems to jibe so well (and with such aesthetic-elegance) with her natural surroundings, no matter the context. Sans effort. Fall, Spring, Summer, Winter. She’s an active participant in the scenery. No, she is the scenery.

Here are some of the things you might not know about Manhattan:

She is, underneath all the glitz, very down to earth and is actually kind of a goof who doesn’t take herself seriously AT ALL!

She harbors zero jealousy toward other goats (aka: not a head-butter)

She’ll sometimes, if she feels like it, let you comb her cheek, for like a second – but, unlike Junebug for example, she doesn’t clamor for it. She strikes a mellower chord when it comes to intimacy.

She exhibits zero shame when devouring apples in front of strangers – on the contrary, she’s more likely to stare directly at you while she’s doing it. Not in a provocative way – more in a “whatever” kind of way. Which is both amusing to the spectator and simultaneously calming, somehow. Potentially unsettling.

Her appetite is near-unfathomable by all measures.

She’s the tallest and most effective tree-toppler of the bunch. She stands well over six feet tall when balancing on her hind legs, reaching for the last leaf (Picture: a clown on a tight rope).

And finally, she’s a unique and lovely, quietly cheering-from-the-sidelines, patient, sweet, independent, lead-by-example, chill-as-a-cucumber kind of a mom to her three completely ridiculous-looking and insanely cute daughters: Queens, Brooklyn, and Harlem (her youngest). I mean, what incomparable creatures!

We are humbled and thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a 2014 Working Lands Grant to update our creamery. We make all our caramel and cheese in our creamery in the back of our barn and these funds will help make our operation more sustainable and efficient.  We are so excited and lucky to live in a place such as Vermont that helps support the working landscape.
