With so much going on in spring and summer, we don’t spend much time in front of the computer. The day-old chicks of our last post are now happily foraging in the pasture, baby goat Stew is browsing next to his mama, and the garden is a bountiful tangle of peas, greens, and cukes. As I type, there’s milk warming on the stove for Manchego, and the girls are helping hull the strawberries we’ve picked for jam. Summer is busy! To keep up to date, we’ll be posting photos on a weekly (or bi-weekly) basis of what we’re up to on Ten Apple Farm. If you’re in Maine, come by and visit, or reserve a spot in a cheese class or goat hike. Be well and enjoy the season!
We are very excited to announce the re-release, in paperback, of our book Living With Goats: Everything You Need to Know to Raise Your Own Backyard Herd. The paperback version sports a snazzy new cover that features 3 of our first 4 goats, Flyrod, Chansonetta, and Joshua (Lawrence Chamberlain).
To celebrate the release of the paperback version, we’re giving away signed copies during the month of April. We want to hear from you! Just send us a message: a blog comment, a facebook comment or post, or blog post of your own, and tell us why you want to live with goats. We’ll choose our favorites and send signed copies t0 the winning answers!
