Keeping a Home Dairy, July 9, 2016
Got milk? There aren’t many options for providing you and your family with fresh milk. An option many use is getting involved with a cow or goat share. Keeping your own dairy animals is becoming increasingly popular. Still, the idea of keeping and caring for your own dairy animals can be a daunting proposition. Not to mention the need to milk daily! This introductory course in keeping a home dairy will touch on animal choice (goat, cow, or sheep), care and management of the animals, milk and milk products production, rules and regulations to consider as well as personal stories to help you choose the right dairying set up for you. Please join us at our farm(s) as we demonstrate our home dairy. We will provide a solid foundation from which you can build yours.
