...We did not try goat milk nor did we visit a goat farm. We did go to the grocery store and search for some goat products. We came up with only goat milk in the milk cooler section. I read the container to the kids. It told the history of that particular goat milk company and some nutritional facts about goat's milk. I was dissappointed that we could find more products to show the kids. I did just print out a couple of things from their kid page that I know my kids will enjoy. In the future we may actually try the milk, although it is about four times the cost of cow's milk. It was $3.12 a quart. It does seem that it is healthier than cow's milk, though. Amazing really. I joke that with our size family we need our own milk cow. We live on one acre in the middle of town, so having a cow would be unrealistic. Just last week we were joking around about getting a goat, though. Not sure we ever would, but it would be possible and apparently they produce about a gallon of milk a day. That is twice what we use. Be sure and read the nutritional facts about goat's milk page and you willl understand why this would be something that would cross my mind to do. Goats are not treated with hormones, either. In our home I have had a recent concern about possible milk related allergies causing eczema in my two little ones. Alll very interesting. Seriously, I like that this curriculum (MFW Kindergarten) is making me think about this in a more open-minded way.
So, did you try thed goat milk? If so, what did you think?
