We’ve had several new arrivals since I posted last about the arrival of Snow’s kids. Since then, Vinca, Ritzy and Capella have all kidded. That leaves just Daisy and our kidding season is officially over.
Right now I’m hand milking 5 does and before too long it’ll be 7…I’m seriously considering getting a milking machine and have been looking into the Simple Pulse home milking system.
The nice thing about all the milk is that I have the opportunity to start making cheese again. Today I made chevre out of 1 gallon of fresh goat milk. I got almost 2 1/2 pounds of cheese. Some I seasoned with Herbs de Provence and another with lavender and fennel pollen, inspired by Purple Haze chevre, my favorite cheese! I’m so excited to be able to make it myself, it’s a little pricey at the store. I think it looks so pretty with the lavender sprinkled on it and it tastes good too! I’ll freeze the rest of the chevre for later.😊
