Dry Ice

The other day, we had a delivery (Graeter's ice cream, yumm!!) that included some dry ice. After making sure the kids understood that they couldn't touch the dry ice, they were allowed to do what they wanted with it. They wanted to touch the fog, to feel how cold it was. They wanted to pour it into another bucket, to see what it would do when it was transferred. And they wanted to look through the fog, to see the dry ice... ... but they couldn't see anything. One ...

Ask A Jonas – Jade’s Favorite Goat

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!

Meet The Goats – Ivy

Our dairy goats are not only foundational to Goat Milk Stuff, but they are a big part of our family as well. Each of them has a personality and during this series we're hoping you'll get to know more about them. Ivy is one of our biggest and strongest goats.  She is Colter's favorite goat, and is very sweet to him. But she lets everyone else know that she's in charge and so the little girls (and me too) are very careful around Ivy. I was talking with the boys about her the other day ... Read More »

We are now making these same logs available as half logs.  Half logs weigh approximately 1.5 pounds. This allows you the same savings as our full logs, but offers a greater ... Read More »
