Welcome to Hay Dairies
Aptly named after the Hay Family who has been running the farm for over two decades — Hay Dairies is a beloved institution, and our island’s only goat farm. First established in 1988 with just 48 goats, the farm now houses a herd of about 700, with plans to increase that number fourfold by 2025.
As Leon shares, goats only produce milk when they’re happy, and the 900 - 1,000 litres of milk produced daily on the farm is a daily testament to the love, care and attention given to its herd.
Fantastic beasts and how to rear them
Goats need to be well taken care of before they can produce milk. Leon Hay takes us through the measures he takes to keep his herd happy, healthy and safe.
