We are in the midst of our second seasonal jam pairing with fresh local peach jam being paired with our soft goat cheese. Don’t miss out on this one!
If you fell in love with Firthcliffe during our Customer Appreciation Week, think about picking one up this week. The Firthcliffe is beautifully ripe and there are only a few left in this recent batch. Also our last batch of bloomy rinds just went into the cave to bloom. These won’t be ready for eating until late September and then you won’t see them again until late March 2015.
We have commenced breeding and have shifted to only milking mornings. We will dry off the goats during October so we are no longer accepting new milk customers. Regular customers should plan for raw milk to end in October. The milking ladies will begin to kid in January and we will be flush with milk again in early 2015.

Lila lived a long and good life. Born in 2000, she raised two litters of kittens in Cornwall with her husband Henry before traveling to Hong Kong and residing there for several years. She returned in 2003 and took up residence at Edgwick Farm, guarding the front stone wall on a daily basis and sneaking up to the back porch for snuggles with her favorite human Aunt Babs. After suffering a stroke in April 2014, she died peacefully in her sleep on July 21, 2014 and is survived by her son Butch who lives in NYC. A morning funeral service is scheduled for July 22nd at 9 am and she will be buried next to her beloved stone wall.
