More info on our host:
Roni is a local food advocate, farmer and RN. She grew up in North Dakota spending summers on her grandparents cattle farm. Her and her husband Erin started growing their own food about 8 years ago with a focus on sustainable and organic living. They raise fruit, produce, chickens, turkeys, sheep and dairy goats. Recently, they have ventured into the area of "agritourism" by launching a "goat yoga" program.
In a world of chemical focused animal care, finding a path of natural and organic care is a challenge, "but totally worth it". The group will discuss the topic of both goats and sheep, kidding/lambing, worming, feed and shelter and anything else participants are wondering about. Come prepared with your questions and Roni will share her insight and resources to help you find the path that is right for you and your herd.
