Photo - Tracey is milking their LaMancha, 'Elixir.'

Our Goats at the old shop are: Nellie and Sebastian, two agouti colored Pygmies we are lucky to share with our friend Anna. Born at Paradise Point Pygmies, they are incredibly cute and entertaining. One is often found on their 'mountain' and regularly chasing each other around... they enjoy lots of petting and go on a lot of walks. Moon Shark, a rescue Boer Goat from a farm who sweetly bottle-fed him and did their best, but the rest of his herd was not so accepting. He's recovered from health issues, grown his fur back in and now snuggles in the sun and at night, with Nellie and Sebastian, who also taught him how to play. He loves being petted and grazing on greens when we take them out. They all let the hens share their side of the barn during the day and Banti sometimes lay her egg, somehow... in their hay manger. The new hen, Lil' Tibby snuggles with goats and perches on Moon Shark at dusk. (see top photo on the left of her perched on him laying down)

Project Grow - The North Portland Farm
Fiber Nygora goats Jeff and Buckaroo are tended by James Ragsdale at this sweet urban farm. "The North Portland Farm practices chemical free, biodynamic farming methods; using drip irrigation and small plot intensive (SPIN) growing practices. Many of our crops are grown from seed. Our farm was initiated on two vacant lots at the site of Port City Development Center in North Portland, and provides fair wage employment for adults with developmental disabilities as an alternative to factory employment. The farm is apart of Project Grow, a radical community supported arts and agriculture (CSA A) project for adults with developmental disabilities."
