THE JOY OF KEEPING GOATS, 2ND

THE JOY OF KEEPING GOATS, 2ND

What’s not to love about goats? They will feed you, clean up the overgrown mess in the fields, and take long hikes with you while carrying your supplies. They will make you laugh when you’re sad, provide extra income for even the smallest farm, carry you to town and back in a little cart, and perhaps best of all, they will gaze upon your face with earnest adoration.

If you have dreams of becoming a goat farmer, The Joy of Keeping Goats can help you turn that dream into a reality. In this comprehensive manual, you’ll learn about the different goat breeds, as well as everything from goat housing systems to feeding, health, and breeding.

For those who are excited about the prospect of keeping goats for their deliciously sweet milk and low-fat, nutritious meat, author Laura Childs walks you through the milking process, and then offers suggestions for what to do with all that milk (Goat milk feta cheese, anyone?), and provides a recipe for curried goat, a traditional Caribbean dish.

As you embark on this adventure, you’ll discover the joy in keeping goats, learning about their care, and getting to know each goat’s individual personality.
