Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It’s all about back to basics: consumers are rejecting consumption and looking for more and more ways to reconnect with the earth, the community, and their food sources. Many people who have tried keeping chickens, toyed with turkeys, or even just fantasized about converting their quarter-acre suburban yard into a pasture has no doubt wondered: What about goats? I don't live on a farm—how do these lively, intelligent creatures fit into my life? Get Your Goat is a comprehensive, engaging way to answer all your questions about keeping goats, as backyard farm animal or even as a pet.

This is a complete handbook for keeping all breeds of goats on smaller acreage. It includes essential information on the nuts and bolts of goat behavior; an extensive breed guide that teaches you how to make the best choice of breed for your lifestyle; fencing and housing; health and wellness; whether to raise goats for product (milk, meat, fiber) or for companionship; and more... written for the new goat keeper, with all the right questions in mind!

About the Author

Brent Zimmerman has had a lifelong passion for raising and caring for animals, and has specialized in purebred dairy goats for decades. His “animals first” philosophy and true passion for farming has landed him several guest appearances on Italy’s most popular food/farming television shows. He is an active member of local farmer's markets and opens his barn to numerous tour groups and school children in the hopes of continuing the welcome “know your farmer, know your food” movement. He is a native of Michigan, and lives in Tuscany, Italy, where he raises goats and makes artisanal cheese.
