New Goat Creamery on Orcas Island
Bill and Jenny Myers are living their dream after opening Myers Goat Creamery on Orcas Island, Washington, where they make cheese to sell locally. Here's a great article on how it all works:
With facilities on their property, the Myers create delicacies like feta, chevre, cheddar and gouda. The secret to these fine cheeses?
It’s all in the milk, said Bill: “If the milk isn’t good you don’t have anything.”
And their secret to making rich milk is keeping their 16 kids, six milkers and two male goats well-cared for and clean. The Myers are up at 6:30 a.m. to feed the babies and milk at 7 a.m., and then there is feeding in the afternoon and milking again at night.
