Sat 3 October I invited Carol, Kyle and Wendy and their alpine dairy goats to join me to help kick off the NZ Cheese Month celebrations. I met Carol moons ago at the Kumeu A&P show. Goat people are the best. They are members of the Auckland Dairy Goat Club.
We had 3 milking does, 2 yearlings and 5 new born kids. Wendy gave milking demos and there were plenty of cuddles with the baby goats. Lots of good goat vibes, likely to repeat this at the next Market Day Nov 8.
I took the milk collected home with the view to make some cheese however my 1 year old toddler took on a Cleopatra role and bathed himself in it when I wasn’t looking!
