 Canandaigua, NY - In the Finger Lakes Region we are seeing more and more small herds of goats and flocks of sheep. The growing interest stems from folks looking to take advantage of a niche market or to utilize a marginal land resource. For others, it is the desire to be more self-sufficient; providing the family with meat, milk and fiber.
 If you are interested in raising sheep or goats, or are a producer looking to connect with others, you will find this series of workshops most helpful.
