Big things come in small packages. Goats’ milk is highly nutritious, containing many essential vitamins and minerals, and a dairy goat can provide plenty of fresh milk for a small family. Goats are very hearty animals with the ability to thrive in harsh climates and terrain. Goats reproduce fairly quickly and within a couple of years a family can have a small herd which can then give them the ability to sell goat meat, goat milk and also produce enough fertilizer to use in their own gardens and crops. This small gift can make a big impact that lasts year after year!
