Frozen Cubes of Goats Milk

This is my milk goat Calista, she is the only one being milked at this time. She gives 2 1/2 quarts a day this is more than we drink, with the milk cow and all so.......
I spent the better part of the day freezing the extra milk in ice cube trays
I store the cubes in dated freezer bags this way I can remove the amount I need. Freezing in the ice trays also makes it easier for me to get the exact amount I need for whatever type of soap I am making. Doing it this way, when I want to make soap at the drop of a hat I have all my ingredients close at hand, even if I am not milking one the goats at that time. :)


  1. Hi Kim, Neat way to save milk for your soap... Sounds like Calista gives you more than enough milk!!

    You asked about places to visit.. Two places came to mind....
    1. Williamsburg/Jamestown/Yorktown (Virginia)---lots of history, crafts, beach nearby, wonderful place...

    2. St. Augustine, FL.... Another town with tons of history, shops, crafts, and a nearby beach.....

    You should google both of those places and get more information...


    1. I will thank you! Virginia does sound really good. I had not though about St. Augustine, I will google away tomorrow! :)

  2. I'm so glad you found your little goat and she was able to thaw out. You and Shirley were very lucky indeed. And now you have a freshened cow...cool. You are going to over-whelmed with milk! We milked for 20 years. I miss the cow, the milk, and that time. Enjoy.


    1. Thanks we were very lucky with Shirley! I have only been milking a cow for three years, goats for two and I do enjoy the fresh milk (butter, cheese) :)


Please leave a comment, would love to hear from you :)
