We started goats before the post-covid/world-wide-crisis situation we are in right now.
However, I can say I am glad we did.
Goats are great at turning all sorts of scraps from lawn clippings, to banana peels, or garden waste and weeds into a quality fresh protein source (be that meat or milk) but in our case milk.

Goats don’t tend to be what everyone thinks of first when they of milk (honestly I think that might just be the American mindset).
