My farm is in the planning stage,
here in brief is the main attractions:
My farm has 20 acres of fields and
60 acres of forest. 1 acre is fenced (it used to hold ostriches) which
has been modified for goats.
The forest will be tended to and walked
through. The 98 Southern Quebec ice storm has damaged many trees but the
forest will survive since the big trees suffered only branch loss.
My daughter wants to build a horse
stable and run a riding center.
My farm will be an environmentally
I have 1 male and 7 female angora goats.
I hope to raise a herd of 50 to 70 goats. If everything goes well, it should
take 4 years.
May 99 update: I now have 5 male and
5 female kids. I never thought I would fall in love with my animals.
March 00 update: added 7 males and
7 females kids.
Angora goats produce mohair wool. I
will be weaving arts and craft type blankets and anything else I can think
of. Since I have been practising the fiber craft, I now have garments and
blankets for sale.
I am also planning a commercial greenhouse
in which I will grow medicinal herbs.
The farm has been named: La Ferme Gamache
- Woolly Woods Farm
Fall 99 update: we now have a lovely
young filly named Shelby and we have on loan Ali, an arabian stallion and
Zézette a white pony.
