New Goat Owner Class / Workshop

held in Mt. Pleasant, NC by appointment only!

If you are a new goat Mom or Dad and want to learn more about your new family member needs, setup a New Owner Class! 

 

We have been raising both milk and meat goats for years in Mt. Pleasant, NC just outside of Concord. When we first started our goat journey I wish we had a mentor or class that we could take to have some of our “what if” questions answered.

 

We will customize this 45 minute class to meet your needs and make sure all of your goat questions are answered during your visit. I strongly encourage you to bring a list of question and your kids too. We will spend this time in one of our pastures with our goat Does, kids and Bucks!

 

Here are some common questions new goat owners have:

  • How often should we worm our Goats?

  • What vitamins and mineral does a Goat need?

  • What is the difference between a Mini Nubian and a Boer goat?

  • How often should I trim my goats hoofs?

  • What should I expect when my Doe is pregnant?

  • When a baby goat is born in the winter, does it need heat?

  • Can a goat nurse triplet baby goats?

  • How soon can I milk my Moma Goat?

  • How soon can a baby goat mate?

  • What is a Famacha score and how do I check it?

  • Can I keep bucks in the same pen with my other goats?

  • Can you touch a goats horns without being attacked?

  • How often do you feed a bottle baby goat?

  • What breed makes the best pet?

  • How long do goats live?

  • What kind of shelter / housing and fencing do my goats need?

  • What temperature is normal for a Boer goat?

  • My baby goat is not nursing, why?

  • Do you know what my fig newton trick is all about?

  • Is yellow poop normal for a baby goat?

 

We are happy to share all of our knowledge about goats with you. If you want to know something in particular just ask!

Please Note: We are not vets, always consult your vet. Mud boots and old clothes are recommended. Classes are non-refundable unless we cancel them due to weather conditions. We hold them outside with plenty of space. If it’s raining we will go inside and mask are recommended due to Covid, if what you consider acceptable social distancing can’t be maintained. As of now we do not have a public restroom!

Goat Classes & Workshops

We are located between Mint Hill and Harrisburg, NC. We are about 30 minutes from Charlotte, NC. If you are new to goats and have some questions we would love to have you setup a New Goat Owners Class. We are also offering an "What to expect when your goat is Expecting" workshop and class. If this is your first birthing season and you want to know what to expect, purchase our workbook and sign up for a online class. These classes are intended for the entire family. Bring your young children and let them learn about goats too.
