    You just got yourself the best breed out there! [​IMG] I've had a good handful of different goat breeds, but nothing beats the Kinder. [​IMG]



    I hope it goes well though. My favorite thing to do was mix some Chevre with freshly picked chives, ground garlic, and onion powder or fresh Shallots.

    I would also enjoy making Cheddar, Cottage, and Monterrey Jack cheese. (and of course Kefir and Yogurt)

    What do you think of the milk? I've bought goat's milk at the store and it was okay but wondering how fresh would taste.
