Kodiak farm starts producing Alaska’s only Grade-A goat dairy

Posted: Thursday, June 20, 2019 9:00 am | Updated: 1:16 pm, Thu Jun 20, 2019.

Kodiak receives the majority of its food by barge. However, this month, the Baptist Mission Heritage Farm started producing the only Grade-A goat dairy in Alaska, having recently acquired the certification necessary to sell its product commercially.

“In Kodiak, unfortunately, we never get anything the freshest,” said Kelli Foreman, assistant executive director at the Baptist Mission and the woman behind the new goat dairy. Now, that can change — at least with regards to some dairy products. “I milk a goat on Tuesday morning, I pasteurize milk in the afternoon and by Wednesday afternoon, you can eat ice cream, or by Friday you can have cheese. It’s fresh. It never has to leave (Kodiak).”
