This family run farm promotes their cheese production by allowing families to see the goat milking process. At the same time, the children enjoy a cuddle with the small animals (oh, there are rabbits too). So when I visited them, I asked if I could take photos of their farm. As they are very kind people, they said yes! I am happy to present 2 series of goats literally running this family business. One in black and white and another in colour.
For me, this experience meant further practice of trying to shoot fast and living creatures (after regularly taking pics of children and more recently horses). It's a challenge and I try to get better at it.

The escape planner
The lost soul
The guarding type
The resembling type
The peace and quiet time
Of course, we sampled some cheese later on. It was a nice exchange and the biggest challenge of all was to try and get away from the farm, as the children could have easily stayed there all night, watching the goats, cuddling the rabbits and stroking the dogs. This was the result of a nice evening in a friendly and goat cheesy environment.
Un grand merci aux propriétaires de la chèvrerie !
A big thank you to the goat farm owners and to the goatee models.
I am dedicating this series to a close friend who loves a special French song about goatees.
