Glenanore Farms raises meat goats.
When talking with the owners about farming goats, we couldn’t help but take pause when we came face to face with a paradox.
Most animal farmers, certainly here in upstate New York, put their heart and soul into raising their livestock. If a mother refuses a baby, the farmer will nurse it to life by bottle feeding. When an animal becomes weak, extra measures are taken to restore its health. The farmers always give their four-legged charges the best care, food, and water.
“Then we kill and process the animals for meat,” said the owner.
