What Holistic Goats is all about! (UNDER CONSTRUCTION!)
Holistic goats is all about raising goats naturally and organically. Addressing the whole goat for optimum health. If your goats aren’t healthy, their milk (and meat) won’t be either!
I had a farm dream since I was a teenager and goats were at the top of my list to have primarily for milk and homemade dairy products.
Though they have ended up being SO much more useful than I could have imagined.
They are more than just goats.. they are one of my most sustainable providers here on my farm. Deserving of the best care and respect.
I’ve always been a natural kinda girl, so I immediately dismissed the modern way of raising goats. No monthly chemical dewormers and antibiotics every time one sneezed or coughed.
But there was a HUGE learning curve to managing goats 100% organically. I had to make it about the whole goat… holistic goats! Any other way was unacceptable to me.
I am someone who has multiple autoimmune issues and when goats are fed non-organically or given chemicals, I can’t drink the milk without having a reaction.
I also had to get the right breed of goats for our needs. Believe me, I tried every dairy goat breed available back when I started. I’ve raised fiber goats and a few meat breeds too! The dairy breeds have my heart. They have proved to be most useful and the breed I raise the most successful for my goals.
I had to learn how to set myself and the right goats up for success. Yes, HUGE learning curves.
The goats have been nothing but blessings since I learned how to manage them holistically and settled on the right breed for us. Not the breed everyone else says you need on your homestead!
I’m here to help you manage a natural, holistic goat herd if that is your goal.
