Lazy Lady Farm is a herd of Registered Alpine Dairy Goats started over 23 years ago. I started with a herd of one
registered Nubians. As the herd slowly grew, I realized that with the shorter
lactation of the Nubies my herd was spending more time on welfare than it
should. In 1997, with an eye toward doubling the herd average I had the great
fortune of meeting Cathy Mabie of
Roeburn Farm . She has been breeding great animals since 1976 and
now has 23 permanent champion does. She gets maximum milk production from girls
that show really well. That was it for me. I sold most of my 12 Nubians and
switched the herd over to Cathy's fine Alpines. By now all of my
bloodlines run from these does bringing a significant improvement to the
bottom line of my cheese operation.
Having learned a valuable lesson I kept an eye out for good bucks and found them
out West. In 2006 and 2007 I flew in two bucks, Andy and Sting, from a
great breeder in Oregon. Pat Morford of
Three Rings Farm strives for great looking animals and lots of milk
production. Spend some time with the lineage records on our site and you will
Finally this year brought yet another buck from out West, Tom. Located on
a 5 acre ranch at 6700 ft. in Colorado,
Mamm-Key Farm strives to maintain a rolling herd average of over 3000
pounds. I am really anxious to see what Tom's offspring will bring.
Lazy Lady Farm has been certified organic since 1987. We now milk 40
registered does. Lazy Lady Farm is a cheese operation, which prevents us from
getting these fine girls into the show ring, but this should not stop you
should you wish to do so. We strive for great looking animals, great milk
production and great health to keep this small farm viable. Lazy Lady Farm
Cheese can be found all over Vermont, New England, New York City and
Chicago. We have been featured in the New York Times Magazine and won several
awards at the American Cheese Society competitions.
The herd is meticulously managed in order to produce such quality cheeses. They
are pastured in the summer, May through October, using intensive rotational
grazing. We make our own hay. Our grain is purchased from Green Mtn. Feeds in
Bethel, Vt., who create our own particular ration. The goats are offered plenty
of minerals to create a healthy and vital animal. The herd is CAE free which is
a plus for us, the animals, and more importantly you. This disease is deadly
and a heart breaker for any owner. We are pleased to offer this to you.
Lazy Lady Farm's herd is one of Vermont's best kept secrets. I have been working
for decades trying to create such a consistent and productive herd of working
girls. If I didn't live in the cheeseroom I would be out there showing them
off. It brings me great pleasure to work with them. I am sure that what I have
to offer will be equally rewarding for you.
A great place for 4H, 4 H, 4-H to find show goats.
