Publisher's Description

In the newest addition to the successful “Living With” series, Hathaway and Schatz let readers in on everything they need to know about how to raise one – or twenty – goats in their own backyards. Readers will discover how to raise goats either for milk, meat, or companionship, and how to shelter and care for their pets depending on the breed (whether they’re eventually going to eat them or invite them into their family circle). Between the friendly advice, first-hand wisdom, and hilarious stories, Living With Goats reassures readers that raising goats is a rewarding and sustainable endeavor well worth their while.

Author Bio

Margaret Hathaway and Karl Schatz live with their family on Ten Apple Farm, a homestead in southern Maine, where they raise dairy goats and poultry, tend a large garden and small orchard, make cheese, and give occasional workshops on basic homesteading skills. When not farming, Karl is the director of Aurora Photos, an international stock photography agency. The couple’s previous book, The Year of the Goat, is a memoir that chronicles their journey from their lives in New York City to their home on the farm.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Year of the Goat:

 

Reading Margaret and Karl’s delightful journey reminded me of the ideals that brought many of us at Moosewood together over thirty years ago. Margaret Hathaway’s spirited storytelling and off-beat humor not only reawakened my own memories of adventurous times, but revealed that the dream to go “back to the land” to lead a simpler life is alive and flourishing. And boy did I learn a lot about goats and cheese! --Wynnie Stein, co-owner/author, Moosewood Restaurant

 

“Back-to-the-land fantasies aren’t new, but Hathaway gives theirs a modern twist by emphasizing “terroir,” the idea that “food is rooted in the land,” and of connecting “the palate to the place.” Local-eating, slow-food activists will find much to chew on here.”

Publishers Weekly

 

"Hathaway's descriptions of the various characters they meet - both human and goat - are funny and vivid. . . . This is a book for anyone who's ever imagined going back in time to a simpler life - or anyone who loves cheese." --Entertainment Weekly
 
"Hathaway pokes fun at her naive notions of rural life with a sly humor that nicely balances the naked earnestness of the endeavor. The details of animal husbandry and cheese production will intrigue those interested in foods origins, and many readers, particularly city dwellers, will also be captured by the personal story of a young couples unusually thoughtful efforts to build a meaningful life together." --Booklist
