    I am going to be arriving in Portland, OR in a couple of days (prayerfully). My baby has been living on raw goat milk and I want to continue to feed it to her. Anyone here have milk goats in the Portland area or know someone who does? I'd be willing to drive quite a ways to pick up milk. Once we find a place and get settled I'd also be interested in buying my own goat milks so if anyone knows where I can do that let me know! Then I'd be spending lots more time on this part of the board! (Huge learning curve here!)

    Thanks
    PL

    PL - I am not sure where you are in Portland - it is a big place. When I visited Battleground, Wa last summer for six weeks, I bought my milk at the Conway farm in Camas, Washington. They sell raw, fluid milk and are a grade a microdairy with twelve milkers. I found them via localharvest. Neat family - immaculate farm.

    Their number is 360-830-0315. I still had it in my phone, lol. Camas is just on the other side of the Columbia River from Portland. If you use them - feel free to let them know I gave you the referral. She'll remember my last name - DeZeeuw, pronounced DeZayoh.

    Email me, I probably know every goat owner in the area. I also have nice healthy goats kidding from Feb on out to May/June. Honestly though, almost every goater I know has their animals dried up now and are waiting on kidding - very seasonal here. Lots of local specialty stores carry goats milk, Haggens and such.
