  • (FYI: This is NOT the monthly goatkeeping group we have, but a more organized intro to the topic.)  If you are considering adding goats, especially a small scale goat dairy operation, to your homestead come for this introduction and learn what's involved from Amy & Steve.

    We will begin out in the barn for our morning feeding and milking routine.  You will meet our three Nigerian Dwarf does and some of their kids, watch us trim a hoof, and can try your hand at milking.  We'll talk about organic feed, herbal and other health care, rotational browsing, housing and fencing needs and basic behavior management.  We'll also do a permaculture needs / products / characteristics analysis of goats together!

    There will be taste testing of their milk and the cheese and yogurt Amy makes from it.  We'll have handouts and references for more information.

    We, Amy & Steve, are not experts, as we are just 3 years into our goat keeping journey.  But, we have learned a lot and pulled together information from various sources for a plan that is working great for us and our girls.  We'd love to share it with you!

    This event costs $10-20, sliding scale, payable at the workshop.  An optional lunch potluck follows.

    Hi Sarah,
    We haven't set up the next meeting of the goatkeeping group yet. We were meeting monthly during the colder months, but were going to meet a little less in the busy summer season. But, we'll come up with something before long, likely in July!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
