Our Goats

Our goats are priority number one to us. From the very beginning we've raised our own goats as well as harvested our own honey. This enablesus tooffer the highest quality  products.  Our goats are part of our familyOur dairy goats are priority number one for us, from the start of the day to the end of the day.

From the very beginning we've raised our own goats as well as harvested our own honey. This enables us to offer the highest quality products. Our goats are part of our family. We feed them a nutritious diet of oats, minerals, alfalfa and fresh greens. In turn, they provide us with the very best goat milk. When you buy Tierra Mia Organics, not only have you purchased quality products, but you contributed to a family company with high standards for your family and a family company that cares equally about its connection and contributions to the community and the planet.

 

Our girls are loved and milking them is essential to caring for them. If they don't get milked, their udders swell and this can be really uncomfortable. Not every goat is bred each year as they can produce milk for several years without having new babies! When they birth new baby goats, we do not milk the mothers for up to eight weeks to ensure their newborns get the milk they need to grow up strong and healthy.

 

Only the best locally grown alfalfa will do for these girls. We also like to mix up their diet with a healthy blend of locally grown oats, veggies, seeds and molasses. Careful dietary selection is important to us because that directly affects the quality of their milk, and in essence what you put on your skin.
 
 GOAT FACTS:
Goats are considered small livestock animals.
 
Chewing the cud

Goats are ruminants. What’s a ruminant? Ruminants are mammals that that have four-chambered stomach, they digest plant-based food by fermenting it in a specialized stomach

The food naturally comes back up and they chew it some more.  This natural process is referred to as “chewing the cud.”

Family

Sheep and goats are in the same family and can look similar and both are distantly related to antelopes, like those cousins you are related to who live in another country.

  

 
Strange eyes

Goats have horizontal, square or slit-shaped pupils, but they aren’t the only ones with these odd pupils. Most cattle horses and sheep have similarly horizontal pupils, but goats have very pale eyes and the contrasting pupils making it much more noticeable than in other animals.

Just Kidding

A newborn or young goat is referred as a kid goat. It wasn’t until the last few hundred years that the word kid was extended to children in the English language.  

Climbers

Goat kids naturally learn to stand within just minutes of being born. 

Goats love to stand on things, if you haven't heard or seen for yourself. Goats are excellent climbers and after all, they originated in the Mountains where they became expert climber scaling rocks and cliffs. Goats have very good balance.

Can it

Goats don’t eat tin cans, but they are healthy eaters and feed off leaves, shoots, fruits, shrubs and other plants. They love all sorts of varieties of flowers. 
What's This?

Goats have an intensely inquisitive and intelligent nature.  They can be excellent escape artist. They are herd animals and do so because there is safety in numbers. Goats are fairly tame and are generally extremely gentle. 

 

 

 

Our goats are curious, friendly and very affectionate. They each have their own personalities!  Each of them is special and dear to our hearts.
