I only have 1/2 acre of property, and I'm going to have about 50 chickens. I've been thinking about the milk/cheese issue and how expensive it is, and I know I sure can't get a cow. But I'm wondering about goats. My hubby has been saying ever since I met him that he can't stand goat milk, but if that's the only option he has he'll get over it or go without. So is 1/2 acre enough to keep a goat??? How hard are they to maintain??? What do I have to do to get them to give milk???? How much does it cost to raise a goat??? I have no clue about them, so I pretty much need advice from square one. LOL!!! Thanks!
