Baby goats needing mom’s milk blamed for goat milk shortage in B.C.

A new herd of baby goats in a Fraser Valley farm has created a shortage of organic goat milk in one supermarket.

Production has been affected after an explosion of newborn “kids” at Farm House Natural Cheeses in Agassiz, B.C.

The kids get first access to doe milk before any of it can be used to make products for human consumption, said Farm House office manager Dana Dinn in a CBC Vancouver interview.

We have a few times a year where the goats are kidding and then we’re short on cheese and milk, so the goats can be with their babies,” said Dinn.

That goat milk shortage has led to signs being posted at Pomme Natural Grocery in Port Coquitlam.

They’re very happy that the goats are having babies, but they’re sad that their product is not here,” said Pomme grocery manager Karen Picco.

Pomme sells about 70 litres a week of certified organic goat milk said Picco.
