Harley Farm Goats

On Saturday we toured the Harley Goat Farm in Pescadero. They have about 270 goats right now. The farm specializes in making chevre, soft goat cheese. The two-hour tour introduced us to the goats. We had a chance to milk a goat and help make the cheese. The tour ended with a fine cheese tasting experience in the decorated barn.

Most of the goats are pregnant and will have their kids in late January or early February, but there were a few young kids scampering about. One chewed on my purse strap for a little while.
