Our Goats....... All the milk for Golden Cross cheese and chabis is produced on the farm by our herd of 220 milking goats. Apart from the 4 male goats for breeding, all the goats have been born and reared on the farm.....

Delicious Goat & Sheep Milk Cheeses

They are a mixture of British Saanen, Toggenburg and British Alpine and graze outside during the day from spring through to autumn. At night and in the winter they are housed in airy straw bedded yards – goats hate the cold and rain!

They are fed hay all year round and milked twice a day through a modern in- line parlour where they are fed a concentrate dairy nut. Milking takes around 5-6 hours a day. All the surplus kids (male and female) are reared for meat on the farm and marketed through Cabrito Goat Meat (www.cabritogoatmeat.co.uk).
