Goat commute

Today, I bike-commuted 6 miles from my house, north of town on Highway 71, to Victory Hill Farm to help my friend Sarah package 120 pounds of goat chèvre.

Being a goat dairy, in addition to a cheesery, and it being spring, there were baby goats at Victory Hill Farm.

I love walking up to the baby goats. They always greet you. Maybe you have food for them? They are always hopeful.

They sound a lot like this.

They were very curious about my bicycle.

Want to try some Victory Hill Farm chèvre yourself?

You can buy it in consumer portions at Main Street Market in Scottsbluff, or you can visit a restaurant that serves it: The Crowbar & Grill in Laramie, WY; Sozo American Cuisine in Kearney; Chimney Park in Windsor, CO; and The Mixing Bowl in Gering.

Also – cyclist fueling tip: if you’re going on a long bike ride and need to pack some food, buy a half-pound of frozen cheese curd from Victory Hill Farm. The cheese will thaw during your ride, and you’ll have a protein-rich snack to replenish your energy.
