What makes our milk so special?
Everything is organic. Being organic ensures that no hormones, or different methods to induce breeding will be used. The goats are able to access pasture year around and during winter months they are given shelter from the elements and have access to fresh air and space to roam if desired. The goats come inside to be milked twice daily and are fed an organic whole grain treat when they are in the parlour. They are then free to go and eat their greens of fresh organic hay that we produce on the farm in the summer.
NOtaBLE – The Restaurant
A Family Business with History
The Oudshoorn family was born and raised in southern Alberta. Ben and Anita have been farming together for 25 years with their family. In 1994 they bought their first goats for one of their children and learned how to make yoghurt and cheese for their family and friends. In 1998 the Oudshoorn family became licensed to produce milk for sale at their family farm in Nobleford, Alberta. They began to milk and produce goat products in 1999. Within a few short years the family began to distribute plain yoghurt for organic grocery stores, slowly adding more flavours to the stock.
