This is an excellent opportunity to see some lovely goats- Nigerian Dwarfs, Alpines, Saanens- learn about goat milk and cheese, enjoy an incredible feast, and take in some fresh air. She is planning on having a few samples of goat cheese available for tasting, and even some goat summer sausage. She will tell us about the goat herdshare program she has started, how she milks and other aspects of the program. After the tour and presentation we will conclude the session with the Potluck.
DOUBLE J DAIRY FARM TOURFor more information or to register, visit the website.
Sunday, July 11, 2:30 PM at the Double J Farm in Hamilton
Joe and Janet Streit own the Double J Farm, which is now a thriving cow herdshare program for real milk drinkers in the areas north, south, east and west of Hamilton (including Cincinnati). We will listen to how the Streits went from a very small operation to the one they have today. Their story includes their involvement in the legal wrangles with Ohio, moving to a herdshare program, growing the herd and the farm operation. The Streits are members of the Ohio Dairy Grazing Producers, which is a recently formed organization. Joe and Janet are knowledgeable farmers who can answer your questions about dairy farming. This farm is an excellent example of what can be with love and knowhow. We will also discuss milk nutritional and safety issues.
