The local homeschool co-op arranged a field trip to a local dairy goat farm. The girls were able to feed several baby goats, see where the hundreds of goats lived, and watch the afternoon milking process.
The farm is the largest one in the midwest, and sells its products in the local stores, co-ops, and at the farm.
After feeding the baby goats, the inevitable question was asked, "Mom, can we get some goats?" Maybe in the future, but at this time the animals we have (domestic and livestocks) are more than enough to keep us busy.
