Happy SITS Day!

Welcome! I was so happy to find out I was going to be featured on SITS. Thank you SITS and thank you for visiting my blog today! If you don't know what SITS is, well it is a group of women bloggers supporting one another by leaving comments! If you are not visiting from SITS or haven't heard of them, well you really need to check them out!

I guess I should introduce myself, my name is Jennifer and my husband and I live on a hay and goat farm in Kansas. We love country life and our farm but some people ask me why goats?! Well...goats produce nutritious milk which can be used to make delicious cheese and wonderful soap. They have big personalities but are smaller than cattle so they are much easier to handle and work. I would have to say probably the biggest reason though is the Goat Therapy! You can read all about Goat Therapy Here!

When Heather suggested I post links to my favorite posts for you all. Right away I knew which one I wanted to post, much to my husbands chagrin no doubt. See like any man's man he does put on a tough exterior sometimes. There have been times he has even grumbled about the goats and their antics because they always seem to get into trouble; but this short video of him and his friend Peeps the lap goat proves he really is a big ol softie inside.

Goats and hay are not the only things we grow here on Shiloh Prairie Farm. I also make goats milk soap. If you ever wondered how to make wonderful homemade soap yourself, well now is your chance to find out how by visiting this post!

Besides the goats, hay and soap, we also plant a large garden each year and sell vegetables at the farmers market. We often have zucchini, tomatoes, corn, cucumbers and even the occasional weird mutant butt fruit at our farmers market table. If you would like to read more you can browse the label links on the side bar of my blog too spend some time with us on the farm or just get to know some of the friendly and funny farm animals that call this place home.

Thank you everyone from SITS for visiting my blog today! Happy Holidays!

Happy SITS Day!

I must admit I've never been the biggest fan of goats (too many hours spent chasing the neighboring farms goats back to the right side of the fence) but I'm digging all the photos of yours! The lap goat is killing me *L* Maybe I need to rethink my goat tolerance level ;)

Crafty Girls Workshop said...

Hi! My parents raise Nubian goats and my dad has become quite the prolific cheese maker. I think he would be interested in your post about making soap. My sister LOVES to plant veggies (she's vegan) so I am sure she'd love to read your blog as well. I think the pictures you've posted are adorable and I totally agree with your post about SPAM on blogs and e-mail (oh and junk mail too). I'll be forwarding your blog address on to my family! Congrats on being the featured blogger today. By the way, have you ever read the Nanny Goats in Panties blog? It's pretty funny!

Happy SITS Day! You know... I think I have some of your soap in my shower. I can't seem to find your store so I can't be certain. But I have a citrus goat's milk soap that I adore and it came through blog connections... and it's a fabulous soap!

MeghanM said...

I wish I lived closer so I could buy your products at the farmer's market! Happy SITS day!

Virginia Mom said...

Your goats look so sweet! (My parents had goats when I was growing up and you are right about them having big personalities- we had a female without horns who would headbutt a male who did have horns!) My mom's grandparents had goats when she was little and she used to sneak baby goats into the house...guess that started her love of the little critters!

Mandi Miller said...

I think goats are so cute and adorable! Happy SITS day!!

Congratulations on being featured on SITS. How interesting that you have a Goat Farm. I was just watching a show last night about making Goats Cheese, it made me sooo hungry.
The pictures of the kids are adorable. :)

I just finished the book 'Goat Song.' Have you read it? It was a WONDERFUL read. But now that I think about it, why would you read it when you're LIVING it?!

Happy SITS day!

Karen said...

Happy SITS day!

I think living on a farm would be kind of cool. I'm strictly a suburb girl, but I've always wanted to have a bit of land and some breathing room!

carol said...

Who knew there were so many goat products. Well, I guess you knew but I didn't. I thought for a minute you were making spam out of goats but then read a little more. Wow, was I relieved.

theUngourmet said...

Happy SITS Day! I love goats. We had a Nubian named Sir Spots a Lot when I was a kid. My sister and I could ride him and he used to eat all of my mother's roses. Once he got inside the house and pooped all over. We loved him! :D

Tina Lane said...

I stopped by and visited the video of your Hubs with the lap goat. Too funny. And very cute.

Stopping by from SITS.

Happy SITS day! I have never thought about all the wonderful things you can get from goats, but there is this one Mexican that is made from goats milk and I wish I could remember the name, but it is my favorite thing in the world. Yummy!

Victoria D. said...

Happy SITS day to you.

Kinda cool to see SITS pick a blog that's a little different, although I can't say I love goats.

The term stubborn as a goat isn't arbitrary. I went to a farm as a kid. Those things are kinda bitchy! LOL

Best to you,

-Victoria

Jamie said...

Happy SITS Day! That mutant butt tomato cracked me up! Love it!

Jamie said...

I love goats! Thank you for posting such and amazing blog. This past year my family moved out of the city to a new home with 6 acres. We are planning to get 3 or 4 goats and some chickens this spring! Can not wait to start making soap and cheese.

Kimberly said...

Happy SITS day!

My son wants goats as soon as we find our ranch out here in CA.

My son has done so much research. I have been so proud of all he has done.

I can't wait to read more of your blog and become a follower.

Yay!! Happy SITS day... =) I can only imagine waking up to goats every morning. Wow Wow Wow is all I can say. You would never see that over here in NYC. By the looks of the photo of the week I can tell each goat has it's own unique personality. =) My daughter can't stop pointing at the picture... Happy Holidays!

JamericanSpice said...

Nice to meet you. I'm visiting from SITS.

I used to drink goats milk when I was a child. It is good for you and I knew it could make soaps and cheese but we didn't do that.
I'd love to try the soaps and cheese etc.

I love farms. Hard work yes but I love it. I wished my kids got to enjoy this growing up. I got to get a bit of farm living and glad I have that memory.

Happy holidays!

Carla said...
