Additional Information

Description

Turn key dairy goat operation launched in 2006. We maintain high standards for raw milk sales and cheese and yogurt production. We try to use and sell a diversified product line to customers at retail stores and farmers markets. We are not certified as organic however we practice holistic and natural alternatives for our animal care. We raise pigs seasonally as a way to utilize all the leftover products from cheese making. Jersey cows help to feed young goat stock so the goat milk is available to create products. We stagger breedings to assure year around goat milk supply. We have been successful in small scale bee keeping. My husband and I have become older and health issues have become the deciding factor in the sale. I would love to see someone step into where I leave off and fulfill a wonderful dream. We grew this out of the surrounding hills; it is peaceful and beautiful. There is plenty of room to grow. We are an hour and fifteen minutes from Portland & Conway NH , 45 minutes to Gorham NH.
