Let’s talk about the baby goats we’ve featured in our latest goat tote. We normally just select one or two cute kids. This year, we decided to spotlight 38 of them (out of 100s – and it was still hard to choose). Many of you have wondered how Farmer John decides on their names. Well, he starts off with the first letter of the mom’s name and goes from there. He does this to keep track of their lineage. And also – it’s cute. This is Part 3 of a 6 part series. There’s a link at the bottom of the page for the other parts.

If your name is Hannah, Heather, Heidi, Herbie, Hi, Ho, Hulk, Honora or Hyaeinth then you have a baby goat named after you!

Dear Bleekman Founders, Staff, and all goats & other animals~

You have absolutely made my day with receipt of a QVC order of (6) soaps & wonderful cream! I am a senior residing in Santa Barbara, CA, but I have never lost my love of my Norwegian families 1885 farm outside of Story City, IA~ filled with animals of all kinds and a great barn, jumping from high in the ‘hay mows’ with my Cuz’. Later my Mother remarried a farmer with 180 acres, but few animals. All were and are now happy memories!

I have wanted to visit upstate New York as one of my ‘to do’s in Life’ and hope to do it next fall. I love your beautiful book. I look forward to knowing more of your products as well~!

I had a goat: “Katie”, a Nubian adult goat, that helped keep the weeds down from the back of a 1/2 acre. We need the help of a herd of goats to keep the chaparel down from our foothills in Santa Barbara, CA!

Thank you for reaching a great animals lover and former farm gal~!
