Our goats are some of the happiest on the Central Coast! As a Farmstead creamery, we raise our goats on the farm and make cheese from their milk – allowing us to manage every aspect of our cheese production. Our herd of 35 goats graze on 3 acres of open pastures and oak woodlands and are protected by our dedicated Anatolian Shepherd, Lily. Our herd consists of all Lamanchas, the only breed of goat developed in the United States with their unique characteristic of tiny ears.
We begin breeding in the fall, and the kids (baby goats) arrive from mid-February to April. We have a lot of fun naming the newest additions to our family – each line of mothers has a theme. We’ve got proper, young ladies: (Tammy Jo, and Isabella) blooming beauties (Daisy, Poppy, Lavender), sweethearts (Tootsie and Blondie), and a bunch of “nut” cases (Hazelnut, Coconut, and Almond), to name a few!
