|The business end of Mary|
I know John has never been to THIS farm. Always something to do. Animals need feedin', barn needs cleanin', babies need birthin', fences need mendin' and the garden needs tendin'.
I milk my small herd of Nubian dairy goats every morning which leaves me with a lot of that creamy white stuff.
|My morning routine|
|Mary is the herd queen and up on the milk stand first|
|After putting rennet into the milk, the curds form|
My goats have a great stress free life. Green grass, warm sunshine and no worries. It shows in the cheese.
The following recipe was sent to me from my mother's nursing school friend in Florida.

Goat Cheese Truffles
6 oz goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
Make 36 small 3/4 inch rounds of cheese using a melon ball scoop.
Then roll 12 of them in the almonds
12 into the dates
12 in the basil
These are a great accompaniment to tea sandwichs or mini quiches.
