About Our Goats

We source our goat milk from over twenty west coast dairies. We view these dairies as business partners, and in some cases we have a decades long relationship. While practices may vary depending on size and location, all our dairies are passionate about the humane treatment of their goats and providing high quality goat milk goodness.

On average a milking doe can give up to a gallon of goat milk per day. The goats are milked in the mornings, then again in the evening. Many people have the impression that goats will eat anything, yet they can be quite picky eaters. Unlike cows and sheep that graze – typically on grass – goats are browsers and feed on a variety of vegetation.

Learn more about some of the most common breeds at our dairies.

Lamancha Goat

LaMancha

This unique breed first came to be in California, by way of Mrs. Eula Fay Frey in 1927. They're descendants from goats that were originally brought to the west coast by Spanish settlers. While LaMancha goats are known most notably for their cute tiny ears, they have many other admirable characteristics. These goats aren't very picky about their environment, and are extremely friendly.

Nubian Goat

Nubian

Nubians are by far the one of the most popular dairy goats here in the United States. This breed originally comes from Great Britain, and was created by crossing native milking does to bucks from Africa and India. They are very vocal, friendly, and are known for their large nose and long droopy ears.

Oberhasli  Goat

Oberhasli

Like Meyenberg, this breed of goat has its roots in Switzerland. While this breed was developed in the United States, it's actually a subtype of the Chamois Colored Goat (formerly known as an Alpine) from the Oberhasli district of Bernese Oberland. Their coats are generally light brown with some black markings. They are very gentle creatures, making them great for dairy farms, and are fairly calm and less fearful than other goats in a pack.

Saanan Goat

Saanen

Known as one of the most productive dairy goats in the world, Saanens are a common breed at our partnering dairies. This breed is always white or a cream color with upright ears, and is originally from the Saanen Valley in Switzerland. The Saanen breed tolerates most conditions and produces a high volume of milk, but must have shade to thrive.

Toggenberg Goat

Toggenburg

Originally from the Toggenburg Valley of Switzerland, these goats are known for their high production value. They are said to thrive best in cooler conditions, and are incredibly affectionate. Toggernburg goats generally have a sturdy build, upright ears, and soft medium-length hair that lays flat.
