Three-Day Goat School

Learn everything you need to know to have your own dairy goats for your family’s dairy needs.  Three-days of hand-milking goats will get you ready for action.  Practical skills like trimming hooves, administering needles and basic first aid will all be taught with hands-on exercises.  We’ll go over planning for shelter and fencing with your existing spaces in mind so that participants can leave with a set-up plan.  We’ll spend the afternoons in the kitchen making cheeses.  By the end of session you will feel and be ready plan for your own dairy goats and become that much more food-secure for your family.
