Georgia, the Dairy Goat

Georgia. Sweet, goofy, loving Georgia. We haven’t had Georgia for very long but have enjoyed this awesome dairy goat. We got her so that we could give her milk to our pigs, but we’ve also used the fresh milk for ourselves. I’ve made a quick cheese, aka farmers cheese, my hubby has made ice cream, sweetened condensed milk, butter, and even yogurt! They have all been very tasty treats. I’ve also made a couple batches of soap with the milk (Goat milk makes awesome soap!)

Back to Georgia. This is probably one of the best goats you could ever want. She loves just hanging out, she licks you when you milk her (as if she’s thanking you), her pen is near our pigs and she’ll stand up to watch them and even “bah” at them, lol. It’s quite entertaining to watch.

She’s also very laid back, once she got to know us. She has even let our older two children milk her. We’ll definitely miss this awesome goat when we hit the road.

Hi! I'm Amanda, a wife, caregiver to my Parkie hubby, homeschooling mom of three and recently have become a soap making enthusiast. My hubby and I have had many an adventure over the years, our most recent being homesteaders in a small rural area of Alabama. We currently have chickens, a dairy goat we've lovingly named Georgia, three young Hereford pigs, a livestock guardian named Snow whom our children adore and two spoiled cats named Felix and Emma. Soon, we plan on embarking on our biggest adventure to date, an extended cross country trip around the United States. Our longest trip was a two week trip to New York and Canada and I thought that was long! So, thank you in advance for visiting my blog, my first by the way! I hope I have something to offer to my readers. Happy reading!
