Mini memoirs allow readers to step into a day at the farm and come away with a new perspective on life. Even city folks will find experiences that translate to paths to feeling more human. The delightful collection also includes the creamery's delicious recipes for goat milk chèvre, feta, yogurt, cajeta, caramels and fudge. This issue is full of heart melting photos taken by the author Hope Hall and also showcases photographer Catherine Frost, who shot stunning portraits of each member of Sunflower Farm’s goat herd. Grit, Grace & Goats is the perfect gift for anyone who loves goats and wants to learn more about local, humane farming. It includes nitty-gritty tips that will help if you plan to make the leap into tending your own herd and plenty of big-picture thinking to remind you why you dream of small farming! The book even includes instructions for making a 3D felted goat sculpture and a knitting pattern for making a goat sweater for those who are looking for goat inspired crafting ideas.
Part 2 of the collection, due out August 2018, will include exciting coverage of the ups and downs of kidding season. 50 Nigerian Dwarf goat kids are expected to arrive over two weeks in April! You can also look forward to lots of tasty recipes highlighting goat milk products, a story about goat yoga, a design plan for building a low waste hay feeder, tips on building a licensed cheese kitchen, advice for when kidding does not go like clockwork and more goaty goodness.
