These goats really work. I use the milk for cheese and soap, and other things. I milk by hand and expect lots of good tasting milk and nice manners on the stanchion.

Goat Milk Properties

Are you interested in goats for their milk? That's the reason I started, and although I thought the health claims a little nuts, the facts are two of my children with severe asthma and allergies were in fact healed after 3 months f raw goat milk. They were able to throw out all their medications and discontinue their quarterly appointments with the pulmonologist. My daughter was able to quit her twice weekly allergy shots. No lie.


I read a great list of health benefits here
