Ask A Jonas – PJ’s Thoughts On Family Time

We get asked lots of questions when we're doing farm tours, selling soap at craft fairs, or simply running errands.  Since most of those answers are heard only by the person who asked, we decided to share some of the common questions here on the blog.  And of course you can ask a question of your own! PJ, when do you have family time? Devotions, TV time, family outings, etc. ~Jane People regularly ask me what a "typical" day looks life in our lives.  But the truth is, we don't have a ...

Hang 10 Episode 2: The Jonases Invade New York City

We LOVE to travel!  We don't get to do it as often as we would like because of the goats, but we always take advantage of every opportunity that comes our way.  Normally it takes a LOT of time to plan a vacation for the ten of us.  We have to figure out sleeping arrangements for ten people, how to travel with ten people, where to take ten people, how to pack for ten people, and how to feed ten people.  And that's the easy part!  Figuring out how to keep Goat Milk Stuff running smoothly and ...

Goat Collars

We mentioned the new goat collars in the post about our goat photoshoot, but we didn't explain why the collars all look different, and why that's important. When we were talking about getting collars for our goats, we realized that we could use them as a tool. We figured out a system, and now, just by looking at a goat, I can tell you who the parents of that particular goat are. The color of the collar tells us who the dam is, and the color of the words tell us who the sire is. We began by ... Read More »

Washing the Beast

We've had the Beast for a while now, and it was getting really dirty. Because of the wrap (the pictures) we can't take it to a car wash - not that it would fit in there anyway. So Dad told the kids one hot summer day that it was time to clean the Beast. "First you had to spray the Beast very gently, from far away." -Indigo "When it was wet you took the sponge and wiped it down, being careful so you didn't wipe the stickers off." -Jade "After Jade wiped it down, I had to dry ...
