I am so very glad that we are now able to use the milk from our goats again (we had prepped them for artificial insemination with CIDR hormone inserts). The withdrawal period was 10 days, but I waited two weeks as I did last year. After having this year’s goat kids so late in the season, it has pushed my whole milking and cheese-making back. But I am working full-speed to try and get as much chevre made as I can before the winter gets too nasty to want to be milking in a greenhouse with no ends to speak of.
Got to get some cheesy goodness into the freezer to last us until next year’s kidding! And before that we want to enjoy it all during the holiday season. Great stuff.
