Goat Farm in Divide

The goats at Stone Creek Farm have a good life. They work less than an hour a day and get three months maternity leave.

Every morning the goats at Stone Creek Farm take their places to be milked by farm owner Bob McMillan. The milk is turned into cheese at the farm in Divide. A kid of the female goat is allowed into the milking room to hang out with her mother so she can get used to the room for when she is older.(The Gazette/Jerilee Bennett)
