Goats are the hottest animal today to raise for hobby farmers, commercial farmers, and members of both 4-H and FFA. But using the producst from a goat requires special skills, handling, and recipes. Here’s The Whole Goat Handbook, chock full of recipes, crafting projects, advice, and more.
Cooking with goat meat requires special, adapted recipes because the meat is so strong in flavor; there’s no devoted goat-meat cookbook on the market—until now! Here as well are recipes for making cheese with goat milk as well as goat-milk soap. And for those raising goats for fiber, here are hard-won recommendations on crafting,  knitting, and weaving. This book will shows you how to do all this—and more.
Janet Hurst has been a home artisanal cheesemaker for twenty years and is a certified cheesemaker through the University of Vermont's Institute of Artisan Cheese. She writes on cheesemaking for Mother Earth News, Mary Jane's Farm, Dairy Goat Journal, Countryside, and more.
