Why goats?


Vancouver Island is suitable for small, diverse farms or homesteads, and goats fit into this picture very well. Manageable on small acreages, from them we obtain milk, meat, and fibre. Goats are also great for 4-H projects, pack animals, and can make excellent companions for ourselves and other animals.

Goats have personality plus! To learn more about goats and the Vancouver Island Goat Association, click on the links at the top of the page.
