Preparing for Goats – Resource links

Folks often reach out to us in order to purchase goats, offer us a deposit and then ask “Now what do I need to do?”

Here’s a great website to provide you with the knowledge to begin your adventure with goats. I highly recommend reading as well. Prior to acquiring our first goats, I spent 6-8 months reading all about the Nigerian Dwarf breed, planning our barn and attending township meetings to get approval for our barn to be built. It was quite a journey.
