    Hi - my name is Pam and we have a 120 acre farm in SE Missouri. We raise Kiko meat goats for breeding and also Nubian and Alpines for all our dairy wants and needs! We have around 70 hens to provide us with our own eggs and some to sell. I'm looking forward to "chatting" about goats....

    the process for goat's milk cheddar is a little long - but once you get used to it - it's pretty easy. I use 1-2 gallons of milk, heat it, I add a starter from New England Cheesemaking, it forms curds, you heat the curds, drain, (I save the whey to bake bread with and feed my chickens), then I put it in a cheese mold and press! If you want more details, I can type in the exact "how-to"....just stuck it in the fridge today and it tastes great, also melts!
