Making Cheese

Years ago I had the privilege of having a small herd of diary goats. Not only did I raise my girls (for a few years) on that goats milk, but as little ones (five and seven) they knew how to milk the goats. Not only did I sell left over raw milk, but I made my own yogurt and cheese. I can still remember the goat cheese feta that I used in my lasagna.


Since moving back to the house on Cactus Road, I'm excited about having a few milkers so that Candace and I can try our hand at making raw goats milk cheese again. This book, The Cheese Chronicles, is a fantastic resource for me right now.

There is nothing like fresh goat chevre.

Blessings to you, Lylah.

The high school girl that I buy my goat cheese from has tearfully decided that she has to find a new home for her beloved goat, Abby. Interested? Candace has my contact info.
