Raising goats, either for milk or meat, can be an incredibly rewarding and joyful experience. Goats are intelligent, curious, often quite hilarious, and almost always fascinating. The classic children’s tale of the Three Billy Goats Gruff and the Troll beneath their bridge may be a beloved story, but even so these creatures have seemingly developed a bit of a negative reputation (jerks that will head butt anything, messy stink factories, essentially just living garbage disposals--you have probably heard most of the jokes). It is fair to say, however, that their reputation is not all for ill, nor is it al in dispute. Here are some important things to remember if you decide to bring a goat farm onto your property:

Fall is here and that means it's time for pumpkin-everything. 🎃
But what do you do with your pumpkins once the season is over? If you throw them out your pets could be missing out on a tasty snack.
For livestock, pumpkins can even stand in as an additional feed source.
Whether you have a patch of leftover pumpkins that didn't sell for Halloween or you just have a few that decorated your porch, it's time to re-purpose them.
