Her name is Thimble (the goat that is) and she is a Saanen goat from an organically farmed milking herd. We picked her up on Saturday and have really enjoyed her presence on the block since then. She is full of personality, loves company, is quite inquisitive and great to milk from.
Why a goat?
- She will provide all of our daily milk requirements
- She is a friendly and interesting addition to our stock
- She eats things that other animals don't eat (like blackberry and gorse)
- Her milk will eventually be used for cheese and yoghurt.
- The kids love her
