This is an introductory level class on keeping and managing a small herd of dairy goats for milk, cheese, yogurt and educational purposes, on small acreage farms, or even a tiny backyard… Participants will experience “barn life”, socialize with the herd, handle goat kids, milk, and learn the basics of keeping and breeding dairy goats. We’ll cover different goat breeds, housing, fencing, nutrition, hoof trimming, worming, and breeding/birthing basics. Together we will make and sample fresh chèvre with greenhouse greens. Suggested donation: $25-$35. No one turned away. RSVP requested… 413-863-8696
