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, which allows us to manage every aspect of our cheese production. Our herd of 60 goats graze on 3 acres of open pasture and oak woodlands and are protected by our dedicated Anatolian Shepherds, Lily and Gus. Our herd consists of all LaManchas, the only breed of goats developed in the United States, notable for their 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!
