We keep ten dairy goats on our small farm outside Fairbanks, Alaska. They provide our family with milk for drinking, as well as for yogurt, cheese, and of course, soap and skin cream.
Our goats live in an insulated barn with free access to an outside pen. Even in the cold Alaskan winters, our goats stay warm and cozy. They especially enjoy going on walks. In the summer time, we walk to the power line where there is plenty of browse for the goats to eat.
In the spring, we look forward to the birth of our new goat kids. Usually our goats have twins, but we have had several sets of triplets. The kids are always full of energy and great fun. Our goats usually give enough milk for their kids with plenty left over for us.
