As usual, summer has flown by! Fall is the busiest time of year for us. For lots of folks, it’s summer, but for us, it’s definitely fall! Chami 

The Common Ground Country Fair is this weekend. We don’t show our goats, but then again at the Common Ground Fair there are no goat shows, just exhibits.  

This is the most wonderful fair ever! It’s put on by MOFGA (Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association) and it’s one of just a few organic fairs in the United States. Imagine going to a fair with no rides, no games, and no junk food, but, with enough to do to keep you busy for a full day or two!  

Our girls are always happy to spend the three days being petted Xableand ooooo’d and awwwww’d at. They seem to know that they are the stars of the show.
