Raw goat milk

“My mommy’s milk is good stuff!”

April, 2015

Fresh, raw goat milk will be available for sale again by midsummer.

Oregon law requires us to make all raw milk sales at the farm itself, which can be a bit of a bother, but it gives you a chance to meet the goats and observe their environment for yourself.

We are located in Burp Hollow, Oregon, about 25 minutes NW of Eugene and 15 minutes West of Junction City.

    I saw your milking stanchion. I have built one, but my wife is not happy with the stocks; I used a drop down bar over the feed pan. I need to re-fit it to vertical scissors such as yours. Can you tell me the the width you used for the slot when closed? We have Nigerian Dwarfs and La Manchas. Wife’s (aka “The Commander”) desired end state is mini-manchas for milk. These our our first, we expect our first kids around December. We live in an raw milk un-friendly state, Tennessee. Any advice you care to throw our way is appreciated.

    Hi Steve,

    I see we have similar titles – MM&HL =p

    The width of the opening when the scissors are closed is about 5″. This is *barely* big enough for our mini-obers. Our boer/kiko mix doesn’t come close to fitting in there. I used the studs from two shipping pallets, and the opening is the forklift cutouts in the 2x4s plus a little gap in between where they’re hooked together.

    I could use several different eyes at different places on the one half for the hook in the other half to connect to to make it a little adjustable, but haven’t had to do that yet. If we ever milk the boer, we’ll have to do that, or possibly get whatever you’d use to restrain an angry elephant (meat goats get BIG!)
