We have had a whirl wind of activities in April, starting with goats being born, which meant we started milking goats again, and made some goat milk butter! We were able to harvest some honey, which gave me a new found appreciation of privet, a weed I hated until I tasted the honey that the bees made from their flowers. It tastes like the wonderful smell of the privet flowers! We sold out of honey before it was even harvested, but we hope to harvest some more in the next few weeks. 3 baby goats are staying with us, Mocha, Finn and Cinnamon Bun. All the other babies have found new homes. Our babies are adjusting to the new routine, which involves being separated from mom during the night so that we can milk the goats in the morning. At 8 weeks, Finn will get neutered so that we are not endangered of him mating with his sisters or mom! Next month, Cadbury and Caribou will be bred so that we can rotate our milking goats and never run out of milk. It was painful, to be without goat milk while Godiva and Klondike were pregnant. We hope to time it so that we have new goats in milk every 6 months. We are so blessed with our little farm, and so happy with where we are going with everything!
