At St. John Creamery we are passionate about both raw milk and the Oberhasli girls that give it! Who would have figured that in November 1999 when I picked out 4 young does in case Y2K really materialized, that I would end up leaving my career in the city to trounce around in goat poop, staying up ’til all hours of the night birthing goats and get up at 4:00am to milk goats willingly – all for less than minimum wage??
The whole crew here at the farm, made up of apprentices, interns, volunteers, and me, can be found throughout the farm every day (the goats never take a day off). Milking, processing milk, maintenance, gardening, deliveries, and best of all time with the goats take up our days (and sometimes nights).
Like many of the folks I sell goats to, I am an entrepreneurial business person “gone country” in my middle years. I love getting my hands dirty in the garden, watching my free-range chickens taking sunbaths in the compost pile, watching the goat kids frolicking and bouncing from here to there while Anatolian puppies learn how to be big dogs from my pack leaders. Nothing in the city gave me such simple pleasures!
We love where we live and hope you enjoy your virtual visit!

Anatolian Shepherds born April 20th, 2015
We have been VERY busy on the dairy and I forgot to advertise the pups til they were 9 weeks old! They are beautiful, correct, bright pups with wonderful temperaments. They have been around goats, chickens and ducks and lots of humans. Click here to learn more about the Anatolian Shepherds to determine if this breed is for you!
