I have a small herd of Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, providing dairy for my family for the past five years. I’ve had a successful goat milk soap business for four years, marketing online and at local farmers markets. Now that my family is gone, I need to become a licensed dairy in order to keep my goats. I have conceptual plans for a farm store.
