In today’s hectic & high speed world, getting back to country style pursuits is rewarding to many areas of life.
With dairy goats, we have animals who are wonderfully affectionate, clean, mostly easy to care for and importantly able to supply us with seriously healthy milk. So many advantages over cows milk it is almost unbelievable.
From the milk it is pretty easy to make a range of cheeses, soaps, butter and cream. It opens up a whole new world of food recipes. And goat’s milk soap is wonderful in terms of its softness, and the improvement to complexion as a result of using it. It is also very economical a good batch can last for months.
Many of our members attend country and city agricultural shows in order to have their animals judged against others in their breed and class and also across all breeds.
The shows are a great day out for the whole family with many excited children enjoying the spectacle and also often participating in junior handler classes.
We also arrange a number of workshops, social events and field days. These are often called GAB FESTS, due to the very high level of information being transferred, from good old gossip, to advice and assistance.
They have access to milk testing which can lead to established milk records and various nationally recognised awards.
