In less than a week it is Easter!!! And the best Easter Bunny we know has teamed up with the Goat to bring you super duper delicious goat milk caramels! The perfect addition to any Easter basket. MMMMMMMmmmmhmmm. Order them here by Sunday pm for delivery by Easter. The Easter Bunny will thank you! 

This is a picture that may be confusing to some of y’all, as it’s a rare and beautiful sight.

You’ve probably heard of goat milk or goat cheese and you may have even realized that those actually came from a goat somewhere, but do you know why that goat was making milk to begin with?

Here’s a female goat, Gertie, with her blind son, Stevie. Gertie started making milk around the time she birthed Stevie and she continues to make it for him. Not for you. For him. And Stevie, who is able to find his mama by following the sound of the bell around her neck, drinks that shit right up, as he should. So let babies like Stevie stay with their moms and drink their mama’s milk. Ditch the dairy!

Spider Goat Farm

The spider goat is purely a creation of science. Outwardly it’s no different from your typical goat. However, the spider goat does have spider DNA in it. That’s right the spider goat creates milk that contains golden orb spider silk.

Scientists refine the spider goat’s milk and then the extracted silk is used to make highly resistant products such as fishing line wire, body armor, surgical sutures and parachutes. It is located in Utah State University. This farm is actually part of a larger research facility at USU that focuses on animal husbandry and genetics. (Source)
