Jenny added the goats to the farm six years ago to help revive the land with rotational grazing and foraging. Jenny’s and Emilio’s future plans include producing value-added products and getting started with agrotourism.

Special Instructions for Visiting Farms With Livestock

We ask that all attendees at field days where livestock are present observe the following biosecurity practices. While biosecurity is important on all farms, clean shoes and clothes are particularly important due to the presence of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).

When visiting farms with livestock, we ask that attendees:

Wear clean shoes or boots that have not been worn on other farms with livestock or livestock buildings, or around a dense population of wild birds. If shoes or boots were worn around livestock or birds, they must be cleaned and disinfected.

Wear clean clothes that have not been worn around other livestock.

Upon request of the farmer host or PFI staff during the field day, you may be asked to disinfect shoes or boots in a phenol or similar solution or wear disposable plastic boot covers over your shoes (provided by PFI).
