0

STARKS – The fifth tour in University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s series of goat enterprise farm tours will take place from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, July 21, at Sunny Ridge Farm, 660 Chicken St. The tour will focus on raising dairy and meat goats.

The goat enterprise tours are taking place through September at farms around the state. Designed for anyone who wants to learn more about raising goats for meat, milk or fiber, the tours aim to teach goat husbandry and help support the growing Maine market for local cheese and meat.

All tours are free and open to the public. No registration is required, but people should arrive at the designated tour start times.

The remaining tours will take place at farms in Dresden and Saco. Visit www.umext.maine.edu or call UMaine Extension’s Cumberland County office at 800-287-1471 for details.
