THE CREAMERY at PRAIRIE FRUITS FARM & CREAMERY
You are what you eat. Our goat herd is pasture-based and our goat milk is seasonal. All of our goats are bred in the fall to kid in early spring. Most of their diet comes from browsing our pasture, restored prairie and our woody riparian zone. They also eat locally raised hay and a non-gmo grain ration. We believe our exceptional goat milk quality reflects the diversity of their diet and the humane treatment we provide to our working girls.
We raise our herd of La Mancha, Nubian and Nubian X La Mancha crosses according to the strict standards of Animal Welfare Approved by “A Greener World.” These standards are considered the gold standard of pasture-based and high animal welfare livestock production. They insist that livestock are raised in ways that allow them to express their natural behaviors. It is considered the "gold standard" certification for livestock production.
