Gaston creamery owners keep goat farming simple and satisfying

“At the Quail Run Hollow goat farm and creamery in Gaston, everything is tiny, especially the goats.

“Everything we do here is miniature,” said Scott Catino, who owns the farm with his wife, Summer Catino. “We do 12 gallons of milk a week? Tillamook spills that filling a vat.”

But that’s just the way they like it.

Summer and Scott, an elementary teacher and a network administrator for the Gaston School District, respectively, were introduced to Nigerian Dwarf goats when their son began showing the breed through the 4-H program.

Recognized as a dairy breed by the American Dairy Goat Association since 2005, Nigerian Dwarves are an uncommon choice for creamery owners because their size means a much smaller milk supply than standard goats. But the Catinos appreciated the breed’s milk, which is high in butterfat, and they fell in love with the affectionate and mischievous animals.”

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely.

And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
