Our Goats

Goats

“They’re very much like people- they’re intelligent and willful, so you always have this little struggle with them. But, they get very attached to you, and they’re really quite lovable.”

– Susanne Messmer

Our herd consists of French Alpines and Swiss Sanaans. They are a friendly bunch full of intelligence, curiosity, and mischief that produce the quality milk we use for our Lively Run handmade goat cheeses. We feed our goats a wholesome diet of local forage and feed, which is essential to milk quality and reflects the character of our Finger Lakes region.
