RESEARCH & RESTORATION OF PASTORALISM
WHAT IS PASTORAL GOAT HUSBANDRY?
Known as goat herding or goat walking, it is the classical and most beneficial form of goat husbandry, that
enables an ecologically sensitive and cost effective method of herd and land management.
LEARN FROM EXPERIENCED GOAT HERDERS, HOW TO HERD AND WALK YOUR GOATS.
WHY GOAT YOUR LAND?
If you were a goat, Goatlandia would be the ideal kingdom. A land with woods, meandering creeks, and lush prairies. Yet far from the ideal of Goatlandia, today many goat keepers are unaware that goats are innately designed to forage. Instead they tend to confine their goats, denying them of necessary and beneficial stimulation and nourishment from their interaction with the land.
DO YOU HAVE THE GOAT THAT REGULARLY JUMPS THE FENCE, ESCAPING TO GOATLANDIA?
Did you know…..that when on land, a goat’s foraging instinct aids in the symbiotic process of defoliating invasive plants, helping to reduce and controls their spread? Goat walking involves the implementation of key training principles that enables herders, packers, and pet owners to take their goats out of full-time confinement and out reaping the benefits of the earth, as assistive land stewards. What goats do best.

GOATS HAVE AN INNATE NEED TO WALK, FORAGE AND EXPLORE.
For over 6 years we have employed research, applied learning, diligence and refined protocols that prioritizes animal welfare and restorative land management practices. The essential element present in all of these protocols is the intimate relationship we have garnered with our goats. Fostered through a commitment to consistent field and trail time. A systematic approach we want to share with fellow goat herders.

WHAT IS PASTORALISM?
Like a forgotten prequel, pastoralism is the ancestor of goat husbandry – what many today describe as goat walking or goat herding. A superior form of herd management, pastoralism today serves as the backbone of an ecologically sensitive and cost effective method of herd and land management.
Did you know there is behooveful sustenance your goats need everyday, but will never get from a bag of feed. Goat Your Land is founded upon regenerative husbandry principles, which goes beyond just nutrition. This is an approach aligned with the long-established history of providing grazing animals the beneficially stimulating interaction with nature, through field and trail life. Resulting in the natural, symbiotic cycle producing revitalizing results beneficial to the land and goats.
The recent advent of industrialized modern farming and agriculture almost eradicated pastoral herd and land management. Having detrimental affects arising from the maltreatment and exploitation of animals and harmful impact on the land. But according to the Herding Academy, that is changing!
