As a Grade A Goat Dairy, Lost Peacock Creamery is conscious of how their presence impacts the environment and they're proud to be a Thurston County Green Business. They milk 44 goats twice a day and make cheese three times a week. Their power comes from alternative energy sources (including solar from the farm), they harvest and reuse both rainwater and water from the dairy, and they utilize their whey by-products to feed our pigs.
They are committed to creating an environment that sustains them without sacrificing the land. They are a certified Animal Welfare Approved farm. In Europe the term “High Farming” is used to reference the perfect balance between plants and animals. Animals enrich the soil, the soil produces plants, the plants feed the animals. As lofty as it may sound, they aspire to succeed at “High Farming” and, in turn, nourish the people.
The farm has made the conscious decision to raise animals with respect and dignity. They believe by giving animals a free and protected environment they will grow happy and healthy, without the constant bevy of antibiotics, hormones and fillers, factory farms are forced to use. They also believe when animals are raised in fresh air and sunshine (or in our case, "rainshine") their milk, meat and eggs are healthier for us.
This farm is not open to the public, but they welcome you to reach out to them on their website about their CSA program and private events.
