for people who love the littlest dairy goats
I want to introduce you to Tammy Gallagher who will be a group moderator and help me answer questions here. She has been a member of my Goats 365 membership program since the beginning and has taken all of the Thrifty Homesteader Academy goat classes. She raises Nigerians in Texas, so she also brings a different perspective when it comes to weather challenges when raising goats.
Thanks, Tammy, for joining us!
Welcome and thank you, Tammy!
Thanks for the Welcome! As Deborah mentioned, my husband and I live in Texas. We started the journey as "farmers" several years ago after he retired from the military and I retired from my career as a Neonatal ICU nurse. With the kiddos all grown up, it was finally time to talk him into Farm Animals!!! I started small with just a few chickens and then slowly weaseled in the idea of tiny dairy goats-fast forward...we quickly outgrew the 3 acres we had in the Dallas Ft Worth area and now have a 13 acre farm in Central Texas. We raise Nigerians and several breeds of poultry and it has turned into a full time adventure! We love every minute of it...well, last week's snowmageddon was debatable!!! Hopefully we won't be seeing that again anytime soon.
