The goats are milked twice a day, everyday.
Milking times are 6 am and 5 pm.

The milking parlor is an efficient and animal friendly
room, with lots of natural light and air flow.

Each goat produces about
1 gallon of milk per day.
Milk production is a truly amazing process, with
the complex setup of secretory cells,
blood vessels, ducts and muscles.
400 gallons of blood flows through a
goat’s udder to produce 1 gallon of milk.

WOW!!! These critters are amazing!

The milk is piped directly through a filter,
chilled to 38 degrees F. and stored or used
that day for cheese making.
Cheese is made strictly from our goats milk.
Come visit Crystal Brook Farm to meet the goats.
You are welcome to come anytime on your own or plan a tour.
