Not only does goat milk offer so many great benefits to our skin, but drinking goat milk is extremely healthy as well. I personally enjoy the taste of goat milk and think that it’s a mental issue for most folks trying it for the first time. I could be wrong everyone’s taste buds are different; however I think it taste like milk- “healthier milk”, which this could lead into a whole other topic, goat’s milk vs. cow milk. You should Google this I think you will be amazed learning of all the other great health benefits goat milk has to offer.

onegoodwoman, Restoring an old abandoned farm sounds like a lot of fun, and perfect for having goats. We currently buy our goat milk from a neighboring farm, but have 5 acres and have discussed eventually getting our own goats. Thanks for stopping by and have fun on the farm, try not to work too hard, lol

Now that I have recently relocated and am in
