About Us / Orchard View Farm / Noah's Ark Nubian's History: Goat dairy products from Orchard View Farm are Animal Welfare Approved.\n\nKaren Gutmann always liked the idea of raising productive farm animals, but it wasn’t until 2003 that she started a farm in Middletown, Vermont after a career as a professor of English at the University of Delaware. Although she began with a flock of laying hens, her intention was always to raise dairy goats, which were an appropriate size to graze the 20 acres that became Orchard View Farm/Noah’s Ark Nubians. In 2005 she was able to buy her first dairy goats and now her herd of Animal Welfare Approved Nubian goats numbers over 70.\n\nIn the years since starting her dairy herd, Karen has bred her animals for milk production, learning everything she can about genetics. Nubians are a large breed known for their long floppy ears and their milk is recognized for its high butterfat. All of the milk from Karen’s pasture-raised animals is sold to Consider Bardwell Farm, just 20 miles south of Orchard View Farm, where it is made into award-winning goat cheeses.
