Welcome to Ryals Goat Dairy. We are the first Grade
A pipeline goat dairy in Mississippi. In April 2007
we started milking our herd of dairy goats. Our herd
consists of four breeds of dairy goats: Saanens, Alpines,
Nubians and Lamanchas. When we began milking we were
selling all of our milk for cheese production. This
year we began a Grade A Creamery and we can sell
pasteurized milk from the farm. We are currently in
the process of getting our farm fresh whole pasteurized
goat milk in stores.
Goat milk is delicious. It is the milk of
choice for most of the world. It is a natural choice
for those people that are sensitive or cannot tolerate cow
milk. Our goat milk is naturally produced and
contains no preservatives, is free of antibiotics, and
Bovine Growth Hormones. Our goats graze high quality
millet in the summer months, and in the fall and spring
they graze rye grass and oats.
Our milk is pasteurized on the farm. There
is no need to homogenize goat's milk. While the fat
globules in cows milk will separate to the surface (cream
rises to the top), the globules in goat's milk are much
smaller and remain suspended in solution. We do
still encourage all of our customers to give the milk a
shake as some slight separation can still occur.

dairy. The goats are waist high which keeps us from bending
over. Sixteen goats can come in each side of the dairy barn.
