Aloha Friday! For public schools, today marks the end of the 1st Quarter. Teachers, parents, and kids all deserve a pat on the back for making it through distance learning. Today, we share some announcements we have received this week.

Adopt a Goat

Surfing Goat Dairy now allows you to “adopt” one of their hardworking milking mamas! The milking goats adopted will stay on the farm to continue milking for the farm. When you have adopted a goat, you will be able to change the name of your goat if you choose to. Your adoption will last 5 years and you will also receive 4 award-winning cheese every 6 months or 4 free casual tours. The adoption of one of the milking goats will have a $1000 one time or two partial payments of $500 to help cover feed & water expenses, as well as help save the farm and employees’ jobs. To see what girls are available for adoption, please visit: https://surfing-goat-dairy.myshopify.com/col…/adopt-a-goat or call 808-878-2870.
