Goat Dairy Visit

I took four students down to Lava Rocks Puna Goat Cheese dairy.  Our bus driver is one of the farmers, although his wife if the full time member of the team.  All the human kids (and me) got to milk one of the goats, to much hilarity.

Here is the milking parlor.  
And here is the shameless advertisement sign....










We will be airing our little one minute segment on PBS Hawaii sometime in June.  Our big camera died, so it was all filmed on our little flips.  I am a bit worried about that - but we can do a bunch of interview shots on Monday with the good camera with our bus driver/farmer.  I would like to see if some of the other farmers around here would want to be in our little segments?

The kids got to taste goat milk and fresh cheese - it was a good morning.  (My poor husband - now I REALLY want a goat or two or a cow.)

and...What did you think of the taste of the goat milk and goat cheese?

Oh, I have always loved their cheese - they sell it at the Hilo Farmer's Market, and the milk was great! Those Saanen and Nubian goats had the largest udders - I was amazed.

I have never had goat milk, but am in loved with goat cheese.

The milk tastes like milk - we tried some fresh milk - it has very little of the fat globules of the unpasteurized, unhomogenized cow milk - it is naturally homogenized. Pretty good stuff!

This must have been a wonderful day showing the school children around. Nice pics.
