Briefly describe your current occupation(s) and responsibilities and list previous agricultural employment and experiences. If you are currently farming or ranching, please state the size, type(s), and location of the operation.We are a couple who live in Missoula and have extensive farming experience on a 30 acre farm outside of town. We are wanting to continue learning as much as we can about crops and livestock. We have a small goat herd now, 3 Nigerian dwarf goats, and are looking to build our goat milking business. We would like on site housing at a farm because we like being close to our herd. Currently we are small scale but looking to grow.
