Kidding Season Ends, Cheese Season Begins!

Posted 6/11/2012 8:58am by David Brunner & Rhonda Butler.

The end of May and beginning of June have been full of transitions here at Asgaard.  We officially finished kidding season, with our last doe giving birth on May 18th.  In total, 95 kids were born this season from 47 does.  All the girls are now coming into the milking parlor twice a day and, with the majority of the kids already weaned, we can truly dedicate the milk to cheesemaking.  We are now in the thick of cheese production, with fresh chevre and our popular bloomy-rinds (Whiteface Mountain and Barkeater Buche) ready now and new batches of feta and tomme aging away.  Stop by the farm during our store hours or come by a market to get all your favorite goat cheeses.  A big thanks to all the volunteers who helped us bottle-feed or take care of kids during the last few months, and of course a hearty "good job" to the milking does--the stars of the show!
