Instructor: Rose Bartiss has been raising goats near Vermontville, New York, for 10 years. The extra milk on the farm goes into goat milk soap that Rose sells locally. In 2011, Rose started the Adirondack Goat Club to bring together goat owners and enthusiasts all over the area. The mission of the club is to create a network of people who can rely on each other for help with their goats, for the sharing of information and equipment, and for the sale and trade of quality animals.
