MIlk is milk. If you can use cow milk you can use goat milk. You might need to tweek the recipe a bit.

you can make all kinds of cheeses!
we just had homemade pizza last nite with homemade mozzarella from goats milk & last week we had lasagne with the goats milk mozz and ricotta... Then there is cheesecake topped with blueberries, yum!

I haven't tried making butter, it takes a while to skim off enough cream to do that, (and I always find a use for it before I have enough to bother with) but I collect it and freeze the cream to use when I need a bit.

you can also make goats milk soap, DH makes a basic unscented honey oatmeal that we love and use for gifts.
right now we have 4 bottle babies drinking any excess, am glad we have lots of cheese in the freezer to use!

Yogurt.

I make it by the gallon as we eat so much of it.

Fankhausers way give us excellent results. There was a time that I had a couple of qrts in the fridge that where over a year old when we finally used them up they tasted great. The jars seems to seal and thus keeps for a long time when made Fankhausers way.
