© 2009 Double Bar J | doublebarjcashmere[at]yahoo.com

Double Bar J was established in Elko, Nevada in 1997.  In 2001 the farm relocated to the high desert southwest of Ely, Nevada. Our farm is almost 6,000 feet above sea level. Although this is classified as desert, we rarely get above the mid-nineties in the summer and we often fall below zero in the winter. Our cashmere goats thrive in this environment and rarely spend any time in our barns.

The farm started with a small herd of weathers and added three does in 2008.  The current herd of goats includes 25 breeding does, varying numbers of replacement doelings and bucks depending on the year. Each February our does start kidding and we immediately start harvesting their cashmere.  We hand comb our does to maximize our fleece collections and avoid the issue of second clips.

Cashmere does are excellent mothers. Our does usually have twins, but do on occasion deliver triplets or quadruplets. We allow our does to raise their own kids, however we do bottle feed extra kids when the does have triplets and quadruplets to reduce the stress on the doe.   Each spring we have between 40 to 50 new kids running and bucking around the corrals and pastures.

Our goats milk soap is made weekly in our kitchen. Goats
milk is an excellent moisturizer that has been used for centuries as a cleanser and skin conditioner. Unlike other milk soaps or commercially made soaps, goats milk soap has a pH level that is very close to the human skin's pH. This helps our skin maintain its natural balance, which is especially critical for all of us.

Living in the high desert as we do, we have become addicted to the moisturizing qualities of the goats milk soap. We now take our own soap with us when we travel, as we can instantly feel the difference between our soap and commercial soaps.
