Community Foods

Because of urinary tract birth defects in the genetics of these kids, they all need to be sold as meat goats.  They are being raised on organically and the herd is CAE negative.  They were born the week of February 13 and should weigh about 75 pounds when they are 10 or 11 months old.  .



Want to go in on bulk organic feed orders?  Do you have a source you order from but would like to go in on a group order?


I am currently picking up from Coyote Creek.  The total group order is a 500 lbs minimum wholesale order for any combination of feeds.  To order chicken feed, goat feed or a specialty mix the group order must be at least  250 lbs of each mix.  I currently pickup organic alfalfa pellets and Fertrell minerals (75lbs) but would like to start getting chicken feed and goat feed. 


Contact me with your interest and I'll send you the link to enter your order information on the Google spreadsheet. Orders would be picked up at the farm on the scheduled afternoon and scooped/poured and weighed from the 1000# sized bag into your container.



Milk Kefir grains, Water Kefir grains, andKombucha Scobys were meant to be shared.  That's why I call them community foods. If I have extras, I'm willing to share for the cost of the ice packs $0.92 and Priority Mail shipping (6.80=$7.72). If you are in Austin, you can set a time to pick them up. Contact me to see if I have any extras available.  512-655-9039.

Have a doe that just won't kick her kids off? Thanks, Iza for thinking this up when nothing else worked.  Our use has shown that you need more than one bag.  We change and hand wash our bags after every milking.  On cool or rainy days they don't dry out fast enough for reuse.  And, of course, the goats do succeed at the group effort of eating them off on occasion. :)

Milking kit contains:
- 1 10 gallon Tote 
- 1 Large Utility Towel hand towel size to soak up spills in the bottom of the tote
- 36 Utility Towels for washing hands and udders. You could cut up old towels from home. They are dish cloth size.
- 2 Filters for milking bowl-reusable. You could cut up an old white cotton sheet or cloth diapers. I cut on a fold and filter through a double thickness.
- 3 half gallon and 1 quart canning jars
- Carrying Bag and 3 separator rags for Jars. A wine bag would be even better.
- Milking machine teat cup and tubing or use community one
- Milking machine bottle lid with fittings or use community one
- Milking Bowl with cover be sure it pours easily  

You can find most of these items at home or make substitutions. I was surprised to see how much it cost when I went to purchase things to put 2 kits together.  

You can take several weeks to gather your supplies. Plus, it's better to reuse.

Don't forget to bring a cooler with ice packs to keep your milk cool on the ride home.

One dozen colorful chicken eggs.

Farm fresh eggs are the best. Shareholders get priority on eggs. 

Our chickens are fed H&H Non-soy, Non-GMO layer feed and scratch. They are supplemented with conventional alfalfa hay when they are not free ranging. The hens are allowed to free range when my neighbors don't have a garden planted and when I am not trying to get new grass established in the spring.

Bring your own container to transport your eggs home. I wash eggs in hot soapy bleach water.  You can request that I not wash your eggs.

If you want to gather your own eggs, let me know and I'll plant them in the laying boxes for you.  Be sure to wash your eggs if you choose this option.
