Meet Your Farmers
Welcome to Copper Tail Farm, in Waldoboro, Maine! We raise a herd of 60 Nubian and Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats. We specialize in farmstead cheese, yogurt, kefir, cajeta (goat milk caramel sauce), goat milk caramels, and goat milk soap. We sometimes sell eggs at the farm from our free range chickens who eat organic grain.
Copper Tail Farm is owned by Christelle & Jon Mckee. After farming for a year in Oregon, Jon & Christelle moved cross country in the summer of 2014 with 8 goats, 28 chickens, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a chameleon. They have since built their herd to 40 goats.
Christelle is crafty by nature, and can be found running around doing one of many hobbies. She loves to knit, cook, garden, brew beer, preserve food, make soap, hike, and hang out with the goats. She started Moon Root Soaps in 2009. (The farm changed it's name in the summer of 2014). After 6 years of teaching first grade, she is teaching Middle School French in Maine.
Jon wears many hats on the farm, including vet, builder, fence putter upper, fence repairer, lumberjack, etc. He plans to raise pigs and to offer slaughtering/butchering workshops in the future. He enjoys ripping around the farm on his four wheeler, falling trees and cutting wood, ice fishing, the snow, and disc golf.
