Gratitude

November 27, 2014

Giving thanks is a mantra we practice all year-long, but it is a sentiment that bears repeating, especially at this time of year.

We are eternally grateful to our families, our land and livestock (especially those milk producing ladies), our staff, our community and the widespread network of cheese lovers here in the Hudson Valley that make our farm possible by eating  and enjoying our goat milk cheeses.

For every piece of cheese that leaves our farm – THANK YOU.

We are grateful to be part of your brunch with friends, your family dinner, that wild cooking experiment, your holiday party, your neighborhood celebration or your midnight snack.  We hope this holiday season brings you closer to the people who love and support you, and that we can make that gathering a little sweeter with something yummy to share from our farm.

Still need cheese for Thanksgiving?

November 24, 2014

Still need cheese for Thanksgiving? We are having open hours on the farm Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 10 am to 4 pm. Look for the sign out front and drive past the house and up to the red creamery building. We will have cheese for sale in the viewing room as well as chocolate chevre truffles.

Why we feed pumpkins to our goats (by Cara Meling)

MacKenzie and pumpkins

 

By the end of October there is not much left for the goats to browse on so instead of staying out on pasture, the girls go on daily walks for exercise and to snack on fallen leaves (goat chips!) By this point the girls are about half way through their pregnancy, so we want to supplement their diet with extra nutrients. Pumpkins are full of vitamins and antioxidants and the seeds are packed full of protein and also act as a natural dewormer.
We take all the pumpkins we receive from the community and store them in a cool dry place where they will last for months. Every day we cut up the pumpkins into bite size pieces (did you know that goats don’t have top teeth in the front? Cutting them up into bite size pieces makes it easier for the goats to chew) along with apples we get from a local orchard and feed them to the goats. On top of the nutritional aspects of feeding the goats pumpkins, they also make them happy!
