Life on the farm: Milking Goats

7:49 AM

This morning, before I even wrote this post, I went outside and did a chore that I really do enjoy; I milked the goats. I don’t know what it is about getting up early, and going out on my own to milk the goats, but I find it relaxing and soothing. Maybe it is because I have to totally concentrate on what I am doing, so I don’t think about what I need to do the rest of the day. Yes, I love milking the goats, and if you ever get a chance to try it, please do.

Life on our little five acre farm is very busy right now. We have a huge garden that is doing well and we are continuing to plant new things. Of course, we have the baby goats to take care of as well as their very hungry mamas. We have a lot of spring chores to do like clearing leaves, making sure weeds don’t take over the flower bed or garden as well as the normal feeding of the animals.

Speaking of all that work, I need to go. We have an organic farmer that we work for in exchange for produce, and we have to go start weeding potatoes. That is the one down side of fresh veggies, all the weeding.

  1. Thanks for sharing about your farm life Sarah! Living in a city area, it's nice to know how "country people" live! =;) I bet those baby goats are so cute!

    I hate weeding too! I just started a little garden (no potatoes) so I will be weeding it soon. Bleh!

    I hope your day is a blessed one!

  2. That is very cool. I have grown up in the "city" if you can call it that (more like a town) and I love the country, and animals and fresh veggies, BUT never had any chance to actually move there. Bummer, I know. lol Anyways,it's cool to hear about the different stuff you do on your farm. Talk to you later.

  3. Sounds like a busy farm! I've never milked anything before... we have a few garden boxes going on out back underneath our laundry line and by our few (very) young fruit trees. That's about how far our farm goes! :)


  4. I milk 2 cows, so I know the great feeling!
