Kidding around in the Scenic Rim
Grasping the bottle firmly in her little mouth, Sparkles is guzzling its milky contents like it's liquid gold. This is one cute kid! With her short, fine white coat, Sparkles reminds me of a dog - she is docile, affectionate and loves being pat.
Sparkles is just one of the 40 kids who calls Naughty Little Kids farm home. Sparkles is a Saanen, one of the two main breeds found on the farm. This breed produces low fat milk at a high quantity. Located at Peak Crossing, this small family-run farm creates delectable gelato from goat milk.
The Scenic Rim is home to some of Queensland's best produce. This year, Naughty Little Kids is joining in with Eat Local Week festivities and is hosting its open day on Tuesday, July 3 from 10am – 3pm. Eat Local Week was launched in 2011 and celebrates food, wine and farming.
Goats peeking into the milking shed
Pat baby goats, hand-milk the big goats and sample delicious gelato and award-winning cheese. The gelato contains no artificial flavours or preservatives and is free from gluten and nuts. A free jumping castle, sausage sizzle and a coffee cart will also be available.
