Welcome to Opie’s Goats, a blog dedicated to the life altering decision to raise French Alpine dairy goats organically and also to live as close to the ground as I can. At present I have four does, Louise, Symphony, Peanut, and my newest addition, Angel. Louise is due in May and I expect one or two kids from her.

Goats are low maintenance yet deliver a lot of laughs in return. They are wonderful animals that are both curious and kind. And, although inexpensive, I intend to have them pay for themselves through the sale of soap and eventually milk and maybe cheese. What happens in the meantime will determine what the future will bring.
