Today I am so excited to have my friend Lesa Wilke of Better Hens & Gardens visiting to answer my many goat-raising questions. Ever since the decision to get Nigerian Dwarf goats for our homestead, she has put up with my numerous goat inquiries. When she published her book, Nigerian Dwarf Goats 101: Background & Basics, she offered to send me a copy. I read it from digital cover to cover. It answered many of my questions and taught me quite a few things I didn’t even know I didn’t know. I figured other people who are considering goats probably have similar questions as I did, so Lesa was kind enough to share her answers with us all.

They said I couldn't do it. My property is too small. There are too many land restrictions living in town. I have trouble sewing in a straight line and I set off the smoke detector when I boil water. Well you know what? I'm figuring it out. I currently have a flock of ducks, quail, and chickens, as well as four Nigerian Dwarf goats. Between our livestock and our gardens (over half our 1/4 acre is edibles), we produce most of our food. I may not be the poster child of a domestic goddess, but I am definitely a homesteader. Find out how I overcome challenges. I believe that everyone can be a homesteader, no matter where they live. Visit me at The 104 Homestead
