If you have questions about entering the amazing world of goat farming, John and Rachel—makers of Red Clay Soap—are happy to be hosting a Goat Farming Basics Workshop at their homestead, Double Blessing Farm. Having been a DHEC certified dairy since 2000, they have built and operated two different farms in South Carolina, and have learned the homestead dairy world from the inside out.
