Cheese Please

Hermione fights Mina to be first to the milking stand every morning.  They butt heads and jostle for position at the gate.  Since they haven’t figured out yet how to open the gate by themselves yet I always let Hermione out first because if I don’t, she leans against the fence by the milkstand and has actually started distorting it.  Brat.  It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that a goat could open a pasture gate…. 0ur first buck  Jerry Lee could open it with his lips and that’s no small feat.  When we have new visitors to the farm I always tell them the gate is an I.Q. test because it’s kind of tricky to figure out.   Jerry Lee was too smart for us, we sold him pretty quickly.

I get almost a quart a day from each of my girls from the morning milking.  I’m on a once a week cheesemaking schedule, it’s nice to have spinach and warm chevre salads again.  If anyone has a favorite recipe using goat cheese to share, I’d love to see it!
