In January the BELL Garden hosted its first community workshop of 2016 – Goat Milking and Cheese Making. The Noble family of Noble Springs Dairy http://www.noble-springs.com/ brought out two of their friendliest residents to help us out. Parents and children each had the opportunity to milk the goat, and most for the first time ever, before taking the milk indoors and turning it into cheese. The Nobles also brought along some herb goat cheese and goat milk soap for purchase. It may be cliche but a good time was had by all!
