How to Milk a Goat . . . The RIGHT Way!

How to Milk a Goat . . . The RIGHT Way!

Greetings guys! Settle in, because today's a biggie: we're are going to learn how to milk a goat. It's actually a really easy thing to do, but when people first start milking it can be a little tricky. What we are going to do is to walk you through the whole process from start to finish to see how we milk a goat and produce clean, healthy, raw milk at Atitlan Organics. We really recommend watching the video with this blog, as a lot of what we're describing is easier to capture visually. Enjoy!

Field Trip: Quixaya

Field Trip: Quixaya

Today's post is a glimpse of the beautiful town of Quixaya, which in the local Mayan language of Kaq'chikel means "Heart of the Water." Every Intro to Permaculture Course has a Friday Field Trip day to explore the region and see some other examples of permaculture in action. Quixaya's community-based agriculture system of integrated wetlands (producing tilapa, snails, and literally tons of watercress), traditional milpa and highland agriculture, and various micro-systems in between are a mind-blowing example of what can be accomplished with permaculture! Enjoy!
