Above is a picture of the mother and father goat, along with their “kid,” who was born only one week ago. This was a proud moment for the “kids” parents.

There are many benefits of raising your kids around farm animals you have bred. Too many to mention! The below is a small list of some of the benefits of raising your kids up with other “kids” and farm animals alike:

  • Reduces the amount of waste if you do decide that your livestock will be on your plate one day
  • Educates your kids about where your food came from
  • Encourages your family to eat more sustainably
  • Gives your kids a sense of pride, with raising their own farm animals
  • Helps your kids appreciate food more
  • Animals are a natural stress relief for humans

Enjoy!

    My sister kept goats for a while and her children took on the responsibilities of caring and milking them. It’s something I’d like to do some day. My oldest daughter has had good experiences with goats at petting zoos so every time I mention it she says “yes, goats are so cute!”

    It’s true that the novelty can wear off quickly when a child has to constantly care for an animal, but doing this in a way that directly contributes to the economy of a household is a very good education.
