Raising sheep for milk is not something new. It has been done for thousands of years, but not very popular in the US.
For those who have never tried duck, it is a most delicious meat. What makes it most appealing to me is that it does have a more rich taste when compared to the very bland taste of chicken breast.
I raised my chickens from the time the chicks were a day old. Many we have hatched ourselves. The main things that I looked into before getting started to ensure that the chicks grow into healthy chickens were housing, caring for chickens, and free range considerations.
Sheep are gentle and docile. Looking at the reasons why raising sheep on a small homestead farm made sense to me, I figured I would detail them out.
