Early Dawn Farm
Meet Dawn and Bruce Kay, Founders of Early Dawn Farm! They raise dairy goats and sheep in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Their 40 acre farm is an hour drive northwest of Calgary, Alberta.
The boreal forest landscape provides great opportunities including high quality hay production and fresh water as well as challenges such as extreme weather patterns unique to the eastern slopes of the Rockies. Their goat dairy is located south of the hamlet of Water Valley.
They hand milk a small flock of mostly LaMancha dairy goats. They purchased the land in 1987 with a primary goal of raising as much of their own healthy food as possible.
Their creamery produces small batches of artisanal hard and soft cheese, Goat milk caramel and milk based lotions and creams with NO preservatives.
