LETTER: It is good news that thriving goat farm will have creamery

THE CREAMERY would be part of this complex of farm buildings along Lake Drive, east of Highway LL, on the former Roger Karrels farm. Now called the Afterglow Dairy Farm (named after the nearby Uihlein estate, Afterglow Farm), the enterprise has about 1,000 goats. Residents of the Bluff View Estates subdivsion oppose the creamery, claiming it would be a nuisance. Town of Port Washington officials point out that the creamery would be on land zoned for agriculture and is allowed as a conditional use. Photo by Sam Arendt

To Ozaukee Press:

I’m writing in response to the concerns about the goat farm creamery planned in the Town of Port Washington (“Plan for goat farm creamery riles rural Port residents,” Ozaukee Press, July 4, 2019).  

I am thrilled that a goat creamery will hopefully happen in Ozaukee County. 

Our county is loosing farm land; if I lived next to the goat farm, I would be so happy that the farm is doing so well.  

People come to live in Ozaukee County because they like the fact that it is still somewhat rural. We need to keep it that way.

The fact that Blakesville Creamery will be making goat cheese instead of trucking out the goat milk is impressive. I look forward to buying their goat cheese at local Ozaukee County stores.
