Next, Donna took us into her brand new cheese making facility. This is Donna’s 10th year making cheese, but until now she has always had to rent space in other facilities.

  2. They tend to be less than 22 inches at the withers. Unlike Nigerian Dwarfs (another breed of miniature goat) and other dairy goats, pygmies tend to be very stocky, often being described as a “barrel on legs.”
