Overview

Are you a farmer trapped in a city-person's life? Now you can have your goats and keep your urban paycheck, too.

  • Explains the how-to and benefits of keeping goats on your city lot
  • Get a healthy source of milk, as well as a hobby that will change your life
  • Longtime urban goat keeper Jennie Grant is an experienced city goat farmer and Goat Justice activist


Jennie Grant is your average 40-something mother with a bungalow in Seattle's leafy Madrona neighborhood, a happy middle-school child, a tolerant husband, and a pug named Eddie. She also happens to keep chickens and two goats, Snowflake and Eloise, and is regionally known as the passionate founder of the Goat Justice League.

Since Grant began keeping goats several years ago, she has learned firsthand the remarkable benefits and beauty of keeping goats—how much healthier and easier to maintain a yard with goats can be, the tolerance levels of neighbors, the health benefits of non-industrial foods, and how interacting with goats inspires a connection with nature. City Goats: The Goat Justice League's Guide to Urban Goat Keeping is her step-by-step guide to raising a pair of dairy goats in your urban or suburban backyard, from learning city zoning requirements and selecting goats to setting up your yard, building a shed, feeding and caring, kidding, and milking.

Practical and at times comical (just like a goat!), connected both to nature and the city, and slightly rebellious—City Goats: The Goat Justice League's Guide to Urban Goat Keeping is a book for gardeners, people committed to eating locally, and anyone who has ever pondered joining the backyard goat revolution.

Author Jennie Grant is a stay-at-home mother in Seattle who has become known locally as the founder and president of the Goat Justice League, a citizen action group that worked with the Seattle City Council to legalize keeping goats in the city in 2007. Grant also teaches backyard goatkeeping at Seattle Tilth and has been profiled in the Seattle Times, as well as in The Urban Farm Handbook by Annette Cottrell and Joshua McNichols (Skipstone, 2011).
