2006 celebrated many things for us including the building and opening of The Lucky Hook Grade A Goat Dairy.
Jessi has been raising and milking prize winning dairy goats for the past 30 years. She has raised not only two children on her goat's milk but many other animals as well including calves, lambs, pigs, a horse and two wild fawns.
Jessi and her children joined 4-H in the early 80's and showed their goats as far away as Nebraska and Canada. Jessi was the goat 4-H leader and started the club as there was no goat project leader in the county. Jessi and her children made butter, whipping cream and ice cream with their milk. Jessi's grandparents made yogurt from the goat's milk. Once the children were grown Jessi relocated to Moses Lake, WA where she met Dennis Maurer.
Dennis lived next door and raises Black Angus beef cattle. Dennis grew up on a working Wheat and Cattle Ranch in the Davenport area. Their friendship blossomed into a partnership and they joined farms. The new farm was named "The Lucky Hook".
Dennis encouraged Jessi to build the dairy and get licensed to sell the goat's milk. Dennis designed the Parlour and the Processing Plant. They built it together on sweat equity from mostly second hand materials. Aside from the farm Dennis works in the fabrication of food service equipment and builds milking machines in his spare time. Both Dennis and Jessi agree that finding pesticide/herbicide free hay for the Dairy Goats and Cattle makes for a healthier milk and meat.
The Lucky Hook Farm now offers Grade A Raw Goat Milk and Custom Raised Grass Fed Black Angus Beef. All animals are free of any added chemicals, such as antibiotics, steriods, hormones, pesticides etc.
The Lucky Hook Farm produces fresh Grade A Raw Goat Milk and sells both locally and statewide. Currently available at Huckleberry's in Spokane. Highland Health Foods in Kennewick & Richland, WA.
