Curious what a day is like on a small working dairy farm? Join us at 8am and experience a day in the life of a goat farmer. Learn the basics of setting up the milking equipment and then help milk all the ladies(with a machine!). Learn about the different types of feed they receive, the daily care they need, how to properly handle the milk, and more! Curious what fresh goats milk tastes like?  We can take care of that! Once done milking we will run the goats out to their pasture for the day and tend to the other animals on site.
