I didn't realize how long it had been since I had last posted. Wow! I could use the excuse of Blogger being down, but that would be lying. hehehe. We have been diving into the worlds of goats. We are talking to goat farmers and extension agents. We are visiting web sites, and we are making plans on top of plans.
First off, I'm going to have to keep working for a little while longer. I'm going to work as many hours and do as many nails as I can. We are going to need that money starting out. As the farm/business grows, then I'll have to quit and work just on the farm. It can't be too soon for me. lol.
We have joined a co-op for goats. A bunch of small farmers get together and sell their goats to a butcher in Columbus. That way we don't have to worry about the market as much. We have also decided to sell breeding stock for replacement goats. We are thinking about Nubians, since people are crossing them with Boar bucks to produce meat goats. The Nubians make good moms. They have such a high amount of butterfat in their milks, the babies grow faster. But of course, we are still up for suggestions on what kinds of goats to raise. lol.
The next time we are out to the house of the lady that has started this co-op, I'll take some pictures. She has a really NICE setup. And, you can tell she cares for her goats.
So that is some of the things that have been happening around her. I'll try and keep you up updated more often. That is, if blogger doesn't go down again. lol
So unil next time,
Small Farm Girl, soon to be goat farmer.
