A couple friends and I took a trip to a local goat farm this past weekend. It was so much fun and the ladies who own it were kind enough to tour us around and explain the process of breeding and caring for goats. We even got a chance to hold 3 week old "kids" (that's the term for baby goats). Before leaving the farm, we were able to buy fresh goat milk, homemade jam, duck eggs, grapefruits, and the sweetest clementines I have ever tasted.
Do you have farms near you? If so, I suggest that you pay them a visit. By supporting local farms, we are not only eating healthier, but we are also learning about animals and agriculture, investing in our local producers, and being kinder to our environment. So go ahead, visit your local farms!
