Adding goats to the farm was our first step towards keeping “livestock”. Larger mammals often require more work than poultry, but the rewards from keeping them can be equally increased. While we do not have plans to expand the farm (yet) to other larger beasts, it is interesting to take a look at the benefits our goats have brought.

I grew up on a small farm and spent my youth riding horses competitively and gnawing on fresh vegetables from our garden. I moved away, went to college and spent time working in customer service, but the taste of fresh vegetables is kind of addicting. Our small farm has expanding gardens, a small flock of chickens, two geese, and is growing every season.
