The project

Adopt a goat of our flock "Hof Rösebach" in Treffurt OT Ifta (Germany) and receive your harvest in the form of Bioland organic BBQ goat cheese at home. The Farmer Mira will take care of your adoption and take its picture. Also, you will be able to download the adoption certificate and, if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. As the production coming from one goat is big, the adoption is shared among various people. If you wish to have a bigger share, you may adopt more than once. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: once you receive your harvest and you enjoyed the experience, you may decide to renew and extend the adoption.

What do you adopt?

Adopt a goat that we take care of following the Organic Farming regulations of the European Union since 2002. The Thuringian Forest Goat is a native livestock breed that is threatened with extinction. It is recognized by its white face markings and otherwise chocolate brown coloured or black coat. It‘s a medium sized, sturdy goat that is robust and hardy compared to other goats. Its origins are in the German state of Thuringia, which is where we keep our herd of 350 goats as well. Our goats stay outside in the summer months and in good weather and can eat the fresh grass and fragrant herbs, flowers, leaves and bark directly from our diverse pastures around the farm. In winter we feed them with hay and silage made from lucerne. Additionally we give them organic concentrate. Our young herd is 4 years old in average. However, the animals on our farm can get up to 12 years old. For as long as you want to keep it and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew your adoption year after year. If your goat dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your harvest from other goats. A goat produces approximately 3 litres of milk per day, which is approximately 720 litres per year. We can then make about 130kg of barbecue cheese in a year from that. This cheese will be distributed to 120 CrowdFarmers. If you like [soft cheese](http://www.crowdfarming.com/en/farmer/hof-roesebach/up/dopt-a-goat-hof-roesebach-soft-cheese) or [hard cheese](http://www.crowdfarming.com/en/farmer/hof-roesebach/up/dopt-a-goat-hof-roesebach-hard-cheese) have a look at our other projects.

What will you receive?

Each season we will send you a box with: 1 x __Bioland organic BBQ Goat Cheese__ (1kg, shrink-wrapped) This cheese is made from pasteurized milk. It has a mild flavour and can be used in many ways. You can fry it in a lightly greased pan with or without breadcrumbs over medium heat or place it in a fireproof dish on the BBQ/grill. The cheese becomes creamy soft on the inside and gets a golden brown crust. It also goes perfectly on a nice garden salad, simply cut into small cubes and added to the salad as a garnish. Packaged cheese can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 months. Once the packaging is open, it should be consumed within 10 days or pickled in oil as slices or cubes with or without herbs. In an emergency, you can freeze the cheese once it has been opened, although this will slightly change the texture. This cheese contains goat milk (lactose), salt, animal rennet.

When will you receive it?

Our goats give milk almost all year round, and we turn it into cheese. We tend to produce this BBQ cheese in spring and summer, when the barbecue season is in full swing. You can therefore choose between several dates in May and June.

Why should you adopt?
Know who, how and where your food is produced. Source your food in a conscious, direct and consistent manner.
Buying without intermediaries allows the producer to obtain better prices. This helps generate better jobs and social standards in rural areas.
When you adopt something, you allow the producer to ensure the sale at a fixed price and to produce on demand. This also avoids wasting food that is grown without being sold.
It supports producers who strive for environmentally friendly packaging and cultivation practices.
