Why are you interested in joining this group?

To connect with people who have similar interests, to learn, and to share my knowledge and experience.

Tell us about yourself & your interests.

I find it challenging and interesting to try to keep things on a sustainable scale as much as possible, and not over-produce meat, milk, or eggs. We try to create synergy between the various kinds of livestock and to improve the productivity of our land in order to minimize offsite inputs, though goodness knows our feed costs are pretty significant. We're also trying, with limited success, to increase production of fresh produce. Naturally, commuting and working full-time mean there is always room, but not always time, for improvement!

Please tell us where you live so others in the same community can connect with you if appropriate.

We live in the Martha Lake area of Lynnwood, in unincorporated Snohomish County between Mill Creek and I-5.

What expertise, if any, do you bring to the group that you could share?

I have a lot of experience raising and utilizing different kinds of livestock on a small scale, in particular, Mini Lamancha dairy goats.

What is the best phone number for members to reach you at if needed?

Private number.

Introduction

I've raised livestock in an urban or suburban setting since 1997, starting with chickens and goats near downtown Everett on a double city lot. We are lucky enough now to have an acre in the suburbs, and we've raised nearly every kind of livestock.
