Condition & Current Use

We are a goat dairy farm with an on-farm cheese processing facility.  We currently have 80 does.  We are looking for someone who would want to either partner with us or work for us full-time on our farm to develop a goat meat component to our operation.  This venture would involve both the meat and cheese making aspects of the business in varying amounts.  It could involve creation of a small value-added facility for meat processing, leasing of additional property, or use of our property, depending on the type of arrangement we come up with.  We are willing to work with a couple or a family.
