Raffle and Door Prizes!!!

For another reason to come to the first Adirondack Goat Club meeting, there will be raffles and door prizes! Raffle items will include new and gently used goat equipment and books. Hoof trimmers, disbudders, goat collars, buckets and dishes may be in the raffle.  Raffle items might even include a goat!! You will have to come to the meeting to find out! Door prizes will be handmade, all natural, goat milk soap by Rose's Goats. The soap is made with goat milk and olive oil. Each bar is lightly scented with fun scents. Each bar is colored using natural or approved soap colorants.

The meeting will also include a barn tour of my farm. I have several dairy goats on a 45 acre woodlot in the Northern Adirondack Mountains. Come visit the goats and have a good time!
I hope to see you there!

ADK Goat Club Goals

The goals for the ADK Goat Club are thus:

1. To create a network of local goat owners and enthusiasts to share their knowledge about goats with each other.

2. To maintain a resource for goat owners to share equipment, goat care needs, and techniques.

3. To provide a source of information on goat care in the Adirondacks including workshops, newsletters, and lectures.

4. To have fun with goats!

Welcome to the new Adirondack Goat Club! The club is open to all people living in the Tri-Lakes area (and beyond) who own goats or who are interested in owning goats. The club will meet on a bi-monthly basis at locations around the Tri-Lakes. This blog will be updated on a weekly basis with goat and goat club related information. Hopefully the club will grow to include guest lectures on topics such as goat packing, artificial insemination, milking, soap-making, etc. Hopefully this blog will grow to include guest articles on varied subjects of the goat realm.

Join us for the inaugural meeting on June 18th at 12pm in Vermontville, NY. Please bring a dish to pass. Potluck lunch will be followed by the meeting at 1pm. For more information and directions, please contact Rose Bartiss at rosesgoats(at)gmail.com. Thanks and I hope to see you there!!
