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.

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!!!
