VICKY LEE McGARRITY
Vicky Lee McGarrity’s passion for farmsteading began in 2006. What began as a small farm for her family, grew into a licensed raw milk and cheese dairy with her small herd of goats. The quality of the milk was important to Vicky, as she battled a variety of allergies over the years. She quickly developed methods of managing her herd with sustainable methods in mind; herbal medicine; and natural grazing techniques. Over the course of the last eleven years, residents of Bremerton, Poulsbo, Kingston, Hansville, and Bainbridge Island, found her goat, sheep and cow milk and cheeses at a variety of farmer’s markets and restaurants. Vicky has never lost her passion for farming and her animals. She enjoys sharing her simple and effective methods of naturally managing small herds and help you develop your own homestead dairy.
LECTURE Saturday May 20th 2:00PM – 4:00PM
This mini-workshop, by Vicky McGarrity, covers housing, fencing, and feeding a variety of animals. In addition, simple ways to set up a homestead dairy are covered, which includes storing milk and simple equipment for home cheese making.
