The contents of this blog chronicle our experience with owning a small herd of dairy goats. In last 2009, I started on the GAPS Diet, and since I already knew that dairy was an issue for my body, I removed dairy from my diet along with all the other foods we are asked to avoid on GAPS. (Long ferment Yogurt and aged cheeses are allowed on GAPS).

As a result of removing dairy, my whole family experienced changes to our health. After about 10 months on GAPS, I was able to taper off my asthma medication. We kept our little herd for another year, hoping to incorporate dairy, but would experience symptoms when doing so. With much sadness, we rehomed our small herd in the summer of 2011.

We were sad to see the girls go but it was time to move on.
