Amy is doing a Micro-dairy course run by Candace Jagel at WSU Extension.

A very comprehensive course that included a trip to Heritage Farm, to see their dairy set up and to meet their new milking cow, Rose. We dream of adding a few milking goats to the family in the future.

In the meantime we are getting to know these gorgeous girls at Talking Horse Farm. They are a rare meat breed and are living under manager Rob Waldron’s care for this season.
