Sunset Acres Farm and Dairy
At our small farm in Downeast Maine, located on the banks of a tidal saltwater river, we milk about 100 lovely Saanen, Alpine and Nubian dairy goats, all selected for their excellent tasting milk. Because we stagger our breeding program, we are able to milk at least some goats year round, though the main production is spring and summer.
The "girls" are milked twice a day and between milkings bask in sea breezes from the Bagaduce River while munching free-choice leafy green hay and native clover. Their grain contains no antibiotics, hormones or meat by-products.
Our barns are large, comfortable, airy greenhouses, which provide plenty of fresh air and light even in the dark days of winter: pleasant surroundings for man and goat.
The "girls" also enjoy going out to pasture when they want and where we feed them frest-cut spruce and fir boughs - a special treat.
Sunset Acres Farm and Dairy in Brooksville, Maine, is a state-licensed cheese facility.
