The Goats

Crystal Brook Farm is home to 60 dairy goats that average 1 gallon of fresh, pure milk per day.
The goats are managed seasonally – working
with the goats natural breeding cycle.
They give birth and begin milking in
February and produce milk all summer.
The goats breed in September and
stop milking in December.
They rest for the winter and birth again in
February at the end of their 5 month

The Goats enjoy a sound diet of
seasonal browse and pasture, and
eat farm-grown hay year round.
This natural feed yields milk of
high quality and nutritional value.
Small amounts of grain are fed to
insure proper protein intake.
Supplements of salt, kelp and specific
minerals are available free choice.
Goats are very good at balancing their
nutritional needs.


  Pearl, the Maremma/Karakachan mix is a spirited dog with a deep dark bark.  Coyotes beware!
