So, now that we have that out of the way, what has been happening on the farm since I last updated.
We have had goat babies. Two sets of twins,of which three are girls (our first girls, which is great as we will eventually be able to milk them). They are very cute! So now we are getting plenty of milk and I'm getting back into making cheese, and other dairy delights like cajeta (a mexican goat's milk caramel which is very good). I like making fetta, soft ricotta type cheese for cheesecakes and haloumi. But I want to experiment a bit more this year and try some other types.

It looks somewhat professional!!!
