The owner of Bedford Blueberry Goat Farm, Ann Kiessling, makes about 4 gallons of goat milk a day and sells it to three area markets, including Wilson Farm in Lexington.
The Bedford Blueberry Goat Farm began as a retirement project for Bedford resident Ann Kiessling, but it came to fruition before she and her husband could retire.

"This is our retirement project, but the thing is it's gotten of the ground before we even retired," Kiessling said. "It took us two years for us to get it off the ground." With only 13 goats of which only six are milking, one part of being a micro-dairy means that the farm does not have to come under regulation of the Food and Drug Administration. "Because we have so few animals …
