About Leigh Tate

Leigh Tate has always loved living close to the land. From the back-to-the-land movement to the modern homesteading movement, the agrarian lifestyle is the one she says feels like home. She and her husband currently homestead five acres in the foothills of the Southern Appalachians. Their vision is to become as self-sustaining as possible by stewarding their land, animals, and resources. Leigh's homesteading activities include gardening, food preservation, foraging, raising goats, chickens, and guinea fowl, herbs, cheese making, permaculture landscaping, spinning, weaving, knitting, sewing, quilting, natural dying, soapmaking, wood cookstove cookery, and renovating their old 1920s farmhouse.

About the Series: The Little Series of Homestead How-Tos from 5 Acres & A Dream
From the author: When I published 5 Acres & A Dream The Book: The Challenges of Establishing a Self-Sufficient Homestead, I described it as neither a how-to nor a why-to book. Although it contains quite a bit of practical advice about many homesteading skills, it is mostly the story of our journey toward simpler, sustainable, more self-reliant living. The Little Series of Homestead How-Tos is a complement to that book. It is a work in progress which will eventually include all of the skills mentioned in 5 Acres & A Dream The Book, plus other how-tos as well. I hope they will encourage you, my readers, toward your own self-reliant lifestyles.

This is a great short primer on what to expect if you want to own and breed goats. I knew males went into rut, but not what that entailed - talk about gross. Someday I hope to own my own milk goats, but I'll be thinking twice about owning a male. I do believe I'd rather pay for a stud service after Leigh's description. We'll see!!!
