4-H Dairy Goat Club Visits Ruggles Hill Creamery

Members of the local 4-H Club, Caprine Kids visited Ruggles Hill Creamery in Hardwicke, which uses goats milk to make cheese. Contributed photo



On November 11, the Caprine Kids 4-H club of Mendon and Upton had the pleasure of touring Ruggles Hill Creamery located in Hardwick. One of the goals of the Caprine Kids 4-H club is to learn about dairy goats and how they can impact everyone's lives. One use is in commercial operations such as Ruggles Hill Creamery. Owner and cheese maker, Tricia Smith was generous with her time and gave a tour of her livestock barn, milk room and her cheese making room. At the end of the tour the group was lucky to enjoy a cheese tasting of her lovely handmade goat cheeses called "Ada's Honor".  All participants enjoyed the cheese immensely. Ruggles Hill cheeses have won numerous awards from the American Cheese Association and other national competitions.

The club enjoyed their tour and learned that dairy goats are not just enjoyable as pets, personal milkers, and show animals, but also can play an important part of our local food supply.
