Adult live webcam fedds
)Rocky was the smallest, weakest goat we have ever had born on the farm. He was as limp as a dishtowel in his first hours of life..after being tube fed colostrum, he rose up and began nursing from his dam Moonspot on his own!We had to keep him since he was such a little fighter, and now a year old, he is one of our most beloved goats!Can't you taste a difference in food made with pure love? Many people say they do not think they like goat cheese, then when they try ours they change their mind!This is in part due the the fact that we do not keep a buck on the property during cheese making season, also Nigerian Dwarf goats are known for mild milk, but most of all, we think it is because we do not cull goats from our herd, and that commitment to treating every goat born with the most respect we can results in tasty products! We got them because our oldest daughter insisted that we were farm people and if we didn't hurry up and get some animals, she would never be able to tell her kids she grew up on a farm.This 24/7 webcam is one more way we would like to open the farm to visitors so that you can see first hand what distinct personalities these animals have and help us to remind others of the debt of kindness we owe all animals we domesticate.I have been so touched by people's caring and concern for our goats and know others would be too!We giggle when folks visiting ask us if all the goats have names.
We neuter most of the boys and find homes for them in pairs as pets.Some mean very different things depending on who is using them and for what purpose, but for us, “local” dairy products are unique because each bite is intimately connected to the way the animals at our farm live. At any time you might catch one of our 20 pregnant goats giving birth (we've seen many births, but every time it is awe inspiring).Even a town over, the goats are eating different grass, enjoying a different breeze, their milk is not from Stella and May and Sonnet. Check in often this spring and summer to see what's happening in our barn. You might have a chance to watch the kids playing in their special kid pen after dinner or local (human) kids ages 1-99 and their families meeting the goat kids during visiting hours.She was in middle school then, and is in college now.
In the time between, we have grown the herd to 23, built a cheese kitchen and birthed many, many sweet kids!
Rocky rested his head in the man's palm and was still and quiet for the whole 45 minute visit!
