Feeding from the veg patch
« on: September 16, 2016, 07:56:01 pm »
Can you feed goats things from the veg patch? We have quite a lot of things going over in the veg patch, Swiss chard, runner beans and French beans can these be feed to goats, with the runner and French beans there is the leaves as well as the beans.
Thanks

The goats will love them. Just don't give them too much at a time. I wouldn't recommend more than half a bucket each to start.

We have a veg patch directly outside our goats paddock which we plant with veg especially for them and it's so satisfying to be able to give them food straight from the ground!

Mine think the veg patch next to their yard is exclusively for them judging by the hopeful noise they make when I'm outside harvesting.
