A few facts and words on these amazing creatures that we are thankful for.

Dairy Allergy? Try Goat Milk!We love goats!

That should be fairly obvious, right, since we make our living from them.  We thought we would take up some computer space this morning and share a few facts about goats.

There are over 300 species of goats.

Goats are the oldest domesticated animal in the world, despite what dog owners will tell you. Goats were first domesticated 10,000 years ago and were prized, even back then, for their milk, for their goat milk products, for their meat, and  for their hair.  They are, in fact, the most widely-raised farm animal in the world.

Goats are rumored to eat just about anything including tin cans and bicycle tires, but that is just a rumor or tale passed down over the years.  Goats do, however, chew just about anything to determine whether it is worth eating or not.  So yes, it is true, few things in the yard are safe if a goat is around.

There are few animals more playful than a baby goat.  We have friends who hold goat yoga classes and trust us, it is absolutely worth the money to pay for a yoga class where baby goats climb on you while you are striking a pose.

Goats are amazingly adaptable.  We have seen them raised in Alaska and we have seen them raised in the Amazon region.

Not all goats are friendly and cute.  We have owned some bucks which were downright ornery . . . in fact, we have owned quite a few which fit that description.

Goat milk does have more nutritional value than cow milk.  This is not up for debate; it has been proven by countless medical and scientific studies.

And did we mention that goats are curious, enjoyable, social, and most times adorable?

Yes, here at Mt. Capra we love goats.  We love them as animals and we love them for the products they allow us to produce, products like our probiotics and cleansing supplements, our whey and ghee, which enhance life and help others to experience good health.

Ninety years of Mt. Capra . . . that’s a lot of goats . . . that’s a lot of love!


Mt. Capra is a small, family-run farm in the Pacific Northwest which, for nearly a century, has been producing premium whole foods and nutritional products from goat milk. Our grass-fed goats graze on pesticide-free and chemical-free forage 365 days a year. No hormones or antibiotics are used to increase production.
