I am in northern Ohio on business and dining alone at Bahama Breeze. While perusing the menu I noticed no less than 8 items that featured goat cheese or milk. This is a very popular chain with 40 locations. Go Goats.

My local feed store is selling goat soap as a poison ivy treatment, cleaner and preventive. They can't keep it on the shelves, I have stopped by twice to replenish my stock at work and home and missed out both times.

Cowgirl Creamery in SF has shown an interest in carrying "Peggy Sue's Viciously Delicious" line of cheeses. They specifically want Pygmy goat milk cheese. My friend who does a cooking weblog called "Viciously Delicious" works there and approached them with cheese he made from Peg's milk. They love the Pygmy angle and are excited to begin offering them.

Wish us luck with negotiations!

HL, looking good for the ladies! He is normally snow white, lovable and a big teddy bear. This is his second rut as herd sire and I have had to fight him twice just to clean water and food dishes and you can smell him from 100 yards, no joke, you can literally smell him before you see him. It's awesome! He is a beast, no pretentious behavior. He is what he is supposed to be, I love it!

Yes of course! We want to experiment with a little Nigie cheeses ourselves.... You guys wouldnt believe the prices quality goatmilk products will fetch (it needs to be organic, humanely raised product)....

Yeah, that's basically the angle. In addition to being organic and produced on a small farm there is talk of a live feed so people can see the adorable goaties whenever they want. That way they can verify that the goats are happy little pets that just happen to give milk when they feel like it. :rolleyes:

It will also be an exclusive deal with CC for limited edition boutique cheeses. Basically I keep my operation small and non-commercial so they can sell it for crazy prices. Mostly because it makes hipsters feel superior to other people. :p

So long as I'm getting paid a reasonable cut, I'm all for fleecing trendies! :D

Oh he is popular, he is the only game in town. He has probably lost 30 lbs. He has 19 big, mature, healthy ladies to care for, and seemingly they all come in on the same day. He actually hides from them in the afternoon, it is hilarious!
