Free goat food

hawthorn Aug 16

The abundance of food in the hedgerows for the goats continues. We are in the happy position of not having to buy in any feed for the goats. We feed them entirely on hawthorn, ash, nettles, elder, willowherb and indeed any leaves we can get for them.They are thriving on them. Long may this continue!

The elder has so many medicinal properties - I wonder if it makes it to the milk?

The milk is very rich and creamy and I put that down to the goats diet which consists entirely of leaves at this time of year. Free food, no food miles and a natural diet.
