I currently only have 3 does at my farm. Daisy, Tulip, and Rosie. I will be retaining one or more doelings born this year at Cherry Hill. In addition, I plan on purchasing a doeling from Prancing Pony Farm to add to my herd. She will arrive at my farm sometime during the winter or spring of 2021.
Daisy freshened for the first time in 2018. She had one buckling and one doeling. I learned how to milk a goat on Daisy. It was a learn as you go experience for me. After a few weeks of trying, we finally figured out the best way of milking and it was a breeze after that. I made a homemade milking machine that worked great. I’ll post a page on how to make this at a later time.
I was very impressed and excited when I first tasted Daisy’s milk. It was very creamy and sweet with NO goaty flavor :). My past experiences drinking goat milk was from the store and it definitely had a slight goat flavor. So I was happily surprised that Daisy’s milk tasted so good.
