Should we let our BABY GOATS have BABIES?
Stella & Fern are both officially ONE YEAR OLD. We raise goats for milk, and now we need to decide when to breed them so they can have babies & produce milk. There's some controversy on when to breed young baby goats, so we have to weigh a lot of options in this decision.
In today's video, we decide when to breed the baby goats, milk & feed the mama goats, finish the roof on the goat barn, bring fancy new composting bins to the farm, make marshmallows from the ever declining honey bucket, and make DaNelle's favorite dinner that her family hates. Join us on our adventures as we live farm life smack dab in the middle of the city. It's all fun & games until you gotta milk goats & cook from scratch. Watch these city folk try their hand at it.

We live on a 1 acre farm in the city of Phoenix, Arizona. We start the day with milking goats, feeding pigs, and gathering eggs. We have a small plot of land, but boy, do we make the most of it. Each animal on our farm is taken care of holistically & organically. We let the mama goats raise their babies until they reach 10 weeks of age and are naturally weaned from nursing. We keep a small herd of 5-7 milking goats, mainly the Nigerian Dwarf breed, although we still have the queen of the herd, Luna, our Nubian goat. We use the fresh goat's milk to make cheese, butter, cream, and we use it in all sorts of baking & cooking. We love that we can walk into our backyard and gather food. It's the best feeling ever!
After the morning chores, we usually tend to the pond -- we're always adding new pond plants and fish to maintain the delicate ecosystem of our natural swimming pool. Our backyard farm is full of adventures, and we're so happy to share our farm vlog with you. Hopefully you can feel inspired to grow something of your own, or care for an animal with kindness like we strive to do. Thanks for watching!
