Hill farming - goats?
« on: August 05, 2019, 10:31:00 am »
Do you know of anyone who farms meat goats on proper hill/mountain farms in the UK - any reading material, articles, websites, books, etc?
I think I read something about cashmere goats being raised in Scotland but can't find anything.
In New Zealand it's quite popular - they have similiar-sh conditions as some parts of UK so I think that could work around here.
Growing loads of fruits and vegetables! Raising dairy goats, chickens, ducks, geese rabbits and a little boy on 1/2 acre in the middle of the city of Leicester, using permaculture methods.
