In France, you eat a lot of really good cheese. It’s easy to come by whether at an outdoor market or the farm where it is actually made.
In some cases, the farm may include a winery, so a stop is a two for one opportunity.
Stopping at this goat farm was a real treat not only because we learned a bit about cheese making but we glimpsed real farm living.
Of course, there were the goats, totally nonplussed by having people staring and photoing them.
The little ones were more curious and stuck their heads through the railings to nip at fingers and clothing. Some were a little jealous when this newborn was about to be bottle-fed.
The effort proved to be easier outside the cage.
Generally, baby goats can walk when they are little more than 24 hours old, but this fella is struggling. His forelegs were tucked under when he was born and aren’t quite ready to support him. Another week and he’ll be frolicking with the others. By the way, if you want a male baby goat, the price is about $2. Evidently, they are not as desirable as the female milk producers.
This farm is about more than goats. There were all kinds of animals walking around, and it seemed that all were begging for attention. Should I tell you they were not disappointed!
With its beautiful setting
and playful animals, this was a place to spend hours just watching the goings on. Oh, the cheese was really good, too!
