Tomorrow we open Oldfield’s Dairy Bar. The ice cream is made, we have goat milk ice cream and cow milk ice cream in many different flavours. Different cheeses and fruit smoothies are on the menu. Come and taste the farm to table experience. You can even pet the goats the milk came from.
It seems to work well, We can feed six kids at a time.
It all started on a Monday. After waiting and checking the barn hourly for a week with no babies it happened with a bang. Monday we had 12 babies Tuesday is slowed down 6, Wednesday 11 Thursday 1, and Saturday 5 in 10 minutes. It was crazy busy with babies everywhere.
What’s the big deal about goat’s milk? And it IS a big deal! Goat’s milk has long been used as a moisturizing treatment for dry, itchy skin. Think Cleopatra! It’s also extremely beneficial for conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. It is absolutely loaded with great stuff, including Vitamin A, Vitamins B-1, B-3 and B-12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Choline, Calcium, Phosphorous, naturally occurring sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, and many other trace elements. The ph of goat’s milk is very close to that of human skin, and this helps your skin maintain its healthy barrier to environmental bacteria. Goat milk casein is similar to that of human milk and is more easily digestible than cow’s milk for many people. Your skin is your largest organ and it absorbs much of what it comes in contact with. It makes sense to soak up some goat’s milk!
So far we made Orange (it disappeared quickly) maple granola, chocolate cherry shortbread and chocolate/coffee. My favourite is the Orange.
