The goats that produce milk for our cheeses are the Toggenburger, Saanen and various cross country breeds.
Goats are a wonderfully exciting and wise animal. They have a long upbringing and are around 4 years old when fully grown. They can give milk until they are 16-17 years old.
A goat gives about 2-4 liters of milk a day and can be milked approximately 300 days a year. Goats like a luxury life on a new straw bedding and an opportunity to get out on grass fields during the summer season.
