THE MEAT GOATS OF CASTON CREEK has been well received in the agricultural community. It is a practical manual for those who want to make money in the goat business and is a primer for those who wish to pursue their agrarian dreams. Not surprisingly, this succinct and well-written book is also finding favor among urban dwellers and those who dream of retiring and buying a farm or just a small place in the country. As Ms. Tomlinson writes from the heart, her words draw us into an agrarian experience that leaves us enriched by the journey we take.From the Author:
In farming, there seems to be a three year learning curve for any new livestock venture. Meat goat farming is no exception. My objective in writing this book was to share our experience. My hope is that this book will provide the reader with both entertainment and useful suggestions for profitable meat goat production.
