WaterOak Farm, owned and operated by Mark and
Pam Burow, has been in business since 1998. Their farm is a
State of Texas licensed and inspected Dairy Goat facility for producing
Cheeses and Raw Milk. They are nestled in the woods of Jack Rabbit
Lane on the South end of Robertson County, Texas.
The Burows began raising Dairy Goats to supply
fresh milk for the family. The herd started off with the
purchase of two does and three kids. Soon the herd had grown
to around fifty goats and they recognized that the girls would
have to start earning their keep. So, a dairy facility was
built and licensed to legally sell dairy products. The herd
now numbers around sixty, that includes over twenty babies
from this seasons kidding.
Currently twenty-four does are being milked.
The goats browse on the native brush and are only fed a grain
supplement twice a day at milking time. The goats are mostly
Nubian and Nubian crosses. Once a year the goats are tested in
order to qualify as a State Certified tuberculosis and
brucellosis free herd.
The farm sells fresh, Raw Dairy Goat Milk
(fluid & frozen), Yogurt, Feta,
Chevre, and a
Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese in Plain and 13 flavors including
Garlic & Herb, Tomato/Basil/Garlic and Jalapeno. The Burow’s goal is to
provide natural, wholesome, great tasting products for their
