Farmette 1769

Our Nanny goat is named “Olivia”. She is due to “kid” soon. Nanny = a female adult goat that can be successfully bred. To kid is to give birth to a baby goat(s). If she has a girl, it will be called a Doe and a boy would be called a Billy.

In order to produce milk, a nanny must become a mother. This is called “Freshening” your goat. After the kids are weaned, you may continue the production by milking for your own use.

Some people start by milking their goat and bottle feeding the kids. This way the milk can be shared right away. Either way, you can make cheese.
