Ever wondered where do you get goat’s milk or Goat meat in Wisconsin? Wisconsin is quickly becoming America’s Dairy-goat-land as more dairy goat farms in Wisconsin have cropped up in recent years. Wisconsin is also home to some of the best goat-meat farms in America.
The dairy goat industry is young in the US but as the demand for goat milk continues to surge, the number of small dairy farms and goats in the country has also increased tremendously. Wisconsin and California states have been at the forefront in championing the growth of the dairy goat industry to meet this increased demand.
Personally, I like the creamy texture that the dairy goat operations deliver in these emerging markets. Here are some of the best goat farms you can visit in Wisconsin, let me know if I missed one of your favorite goat farms in Wisconsin!
