The goat is one of the most productive additions to almost any homestead. It doesn’t matter if you have one acre or a thousand, goats can provide several benefits for the average homesteader.
I remember the first time I had my own herd of goats. We had a few acres of the farm which needed to have the overgrowth of junk trees and weeds cleaned up. My grandfather had used them for this purpose so I knew, for us, this was the most cost-effective strategy to regain some control over those areas.
