$3,000 — Dairy Goat Parlor
Cassandra is equipping her four-acre dairy goat farm with a certified milking facility/parlor that will accommodate a milking herd of 10-30 dairy goats. With the addition of the certified parlor, she can sell certified raw milk wholesale to local dairies and certified raw pet milk to retail customers.
A belly pail milking system that handles four does simultaneously will reduce her workload. Cassandra also anticipates welcoming farm tours and workshops to the new facility.
