We've had a lot of interest and questions, about our goats, from our farm visitors. We developed a workshop we called "Goats 101" to help answer some of those questions.

Here are some questions AND answers from our workshop:

1. Do you just want a pet?

2. Would you like to start some business...if so, what type of business?
