Fairy Mountain Farm's Goats
We started our dairy with a small (8) herd of award-winning Nubian goats, all of whom travelled quite a distance to join the herd. The herd will be 24 does and 3 bucks by the Summer of 2016, and with another 8 does joining the following year to reach our full house of 32 does and 3 bucks.
Our herd is exclusively Nubian, which provides the quality of milk flavour, percentage of butterfat, milk proteins and sugars that give us the foundation for producing exceptional cheeses.
The goats live in a shaded paddock with enough space to support natural behavior, with a nutritious diet and a barn for shelter.
Our goats typically produce 1 gallon of milk per day (compared with the ½ gallon average that is typical), and the cheese yield from their milk is typically 1.5 pounds of cheese per gallon of milk.
