The ideal reliable guide to goat-keeping for the new commercial enterprise or the small hobby farm. Author Katie Normet runs River's Edge dairy in Central Ontario overseeing a herd of 75 goats which produce more than 50,000 liters of milk a year. Much of this milk is transformed into yogurt, cheeses, and unique goat-butter tarts, as well as soaps and moisturizing creams, which Normet sells directly from the fam and at market.
Normet explores big-picture issues in goat husbandry including: purchasing, housing, feeding, breeding, kidding, milking, identifying and treating diseases, and ailments. There are also chapters on cheese making and soap making with tips and recipes.
