Frequently Asked Questions

Our goat milk is sourced from Our Mashambani Farm Located in Mukono District.

By nature, goats are browsers like deer, and not grazers like cows or sheep. Our dairy goats are fed a balanced, vegetarian diet, which is full of nutrients, and free of antibiotics, hormones, animal by-products, and preservatives.

We believe in the humane treatment of all animals. At the farms, the goats have plenty of room to roam around during the day with free access to both the inside and outside areas. Large shelters provide protection from the seasonal elements such as extreme heat, cold, or rain.

Our goats are milked twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.

We have all kinds of goat breeds represented at the farms we partner with, including Saanen, Nubian, Toggenburg, LaMancha, Oberhasli, and Alpine.

Casein is a natural protein found in all milk. Some people have an intolerance or allergy to casein—especially alpha s1 casein, which occurs in high levels in most cow milk. Goat milk is generally lower in alpha S1 casein and often contains a higher percentage of alpha s2 casein, depending on the breed. Casein comprises 70-80% of the proteins in goat milk; whey proteins account for the other 20-30%. Whey contains many of the important nutrients in yogurt and kefir that aid in muscle development and support the body’s immune response.

If you have been diagnosed with a milk protein allergy or have lactose intolerance, goat milk may not be right for you. It’s important that you consult with a medical professional before making any dietary changes.

Goat milk may be enjoyable by many people with a sensitive stomach. This wholesome dairy milk has the advantage of being easier to digest due to the smaller curds it forms in the stomach and its other, beneficial nutritional properties such as high levels of calcium and potassium, and short and medium-chained fatty acids.

All milks from mammals have lactose, a.k.a. milk sugar. However, goat milk contains slightly less lactose than cow milk and many people with symptoms of lactose intolerance may be comfortable with it. If you’ve been diagnosed with lactose intolerance or a cow milk allergy, be sure to check in with a medical professional before trying goat milk.

Goat milk’s nutritional makeup is uniquely different from cow’s milk. Goat milk is higher in calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin A, and vitamin C than whole cow’s milk. Goat milk contains higher levels of short and medium-chain fatty acids, in comparison to cow’s milk.

Finally, the average size of the fat globules in goat milk is smaller than in cow milk and forms a smaller, softer curd in the stomach. This allows stomach enzymes to break down the curds faster, making it easier to digest.
