Goat Mischief and More: Interview with Itty Bitty Farm in the City’s Heidi Kooy

A couple weeks ago, I had the good fortune to sit down with Heidi Kooy from Itty Bitty Farm in the City to talk about goat rearing in an urban environment. Although not necessarily high on most people’s priority list, I found the concept of goats really interesting and wanted to know more about it after reading her guest post for us. If you haven’t seen it, please check it out here. I found our conversation to be amazing. I had no idea the depth of character goats have; we discussed the hardships and fun involved, as well as those responsibilities any urban goat owner would have to face. They truly sound like amazing creatures if you have the resources and inspiration to commit. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did.

Remember what Fonzie was like? Cool. That's how we're gonna be -- cool. Critical is fine, but if you're rude, we'll delete your stuff. Please use your PERSONAL name or initials and not your business name and do not put your website in the comment text, as both come off like spam. Have fun and thanks for adding to the conversation! (Thanks to Brian Oberkirch and Tim Ferris for the inspiration)
