goats are of the alpine breed, capable of producing almost a
gallon of milk each day for Baltimore area poor children & their
families. When you "adopt" a milk goat, you are taking a
concrete, solid step to turn the tide away from
suffering from malnutrition and illnesses stemming from a lack
of nutrition and instead provide the conditions for
healthy, productive, fulfilling lives for those in need.
What does adopting a goat entail? By
adopting a goat, you
help provide for its food, its annual shots, wormings, hoof
trimmings, vitamin supplements, and any additional health care
necessary for its optimum health, well-being, and productivity.
You do not actually own the goat; ownership stays with Garden
Harvest; rather your adoption helps cover the cost of caring for
the goat so that it can do its best to feed hungry people:
Besides the milk the females produce, all the goats -males &
females- boost vegetable & fruit production by adding fertility
to the soil and by eradicating noxious weeds.
When you adopt a goat, you have no work responsibilities for the goat,
but you are welcome to come visit your goat whenever the farm is
open. Goats are extremely affectionate and love receiving
handfuls of grain from their adopting human parents! You just
need to schedule a time with our herdsman by calling:

General Information about goats: Goats have very
distinctive personalities; they all have
a great sense of humor,
and are extremely smart. They are Houdini-like escape artists
that learn how to untie knots & unlock locks to get out of
wherever they are, just for the heck of it! Goats can live twice as long as dogs,
and make just as loyal a companion.
