To celebrate the release of Pip Issue 8, with our feature on backyard goats, Pip editor Robyn Rosenfeldt chatted to Maria Cameron of Hibi Farm in Melbourne’s suburbs about their urban goat co-operative. The co-operative is featured in the latest issue, and in this podcast Maria goes in depth about the in’s and out’s, how’s and why’s of keeping goats in your backyard.
This is a must-listen for anyone who has ever dreamed of owning a goat! Maria covers off how their co-operative works, goat feed, housing, mentors and everything else you need to know before you get started dreaming of fresh homemade feta cheese and chevre.
