The La Mancha is the only breed of dairy goat developed in the United States. Well, huh. Their milk is high in butterfat. Mmmmbutterfatmmm. And, they’re known for having tiny, “gopher” or “elf” ears! Squee!

“These are hours-old LaMancha girls, our first babies of the season! Suffice it to say, my work has suffered since they have arrived. I work at Broken Shovels Farm, a micro-dairy in Henderson, CO. Every person who works here is committed to ethical treatment of farm animals and the belief that every single animal should receive the same high level of care, no matter their purpose.” -Amber H.
