The Milking Whey

The Milking Whey

    We bring out a milking goat, her kid, and stand.  We will show you how a goat is milked, make some butter, and see the start of cheese making. You will be able to milk a mechanical goat and sample the butter you churned. I personally think that everyone should learn about how milk processing is not necessary and/or good for you. Raw milk is best, so we settled for the basics for the children. You will love this interactive program with real goats.  You will also love to do the sampling of your own homemade butter and cheese. Chevot, Science studies, food processing, simple machines.
