Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the basics of caring for goats.
My name is Heidi, I have a brother named Peter, we are third generation Swiss-American, and I raise dairy goats in the foothills of a mountain range on Grandfather's farm. You can't even make this stuff up. :)

I am not a veterinarian, but worked for years as a veterinary assistant. Additionally, I have attended several goat births (and narrowly missed a few) on our own farm. My family has a small goat herd with new kids born every year. We have a small business making and selling soap with our extra goat milk.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
