Our Alpine goats

Harley Farms is one of the very few farmstead dairies in the United States. We raise milking goats and make cheese from their milk on the farm. This way, we manage every aspect of the outstanding taste of our cheeses. 

Our herd of American Alpine goats are separated by age. The mature goats are milked twice a day, at 5am and 5pm. Each goat will produce a gallon of milk a day. That gallon makes one pound of cheese.

The mature and younger females graze during the day on our 12 acres, protected by llamas, and accompanied in breeding season by our buck goats. You will see them clambering on the chicken coops and in the lower branches of our tree in the southern paddock. The goats will shelter in the loafing barn in inclement weather, but the llamas usually stay out in the pasture.

We begin breeding in fall, and babies arrive from March to late May.
