Goats in Gateshead

Bill Quay Goat Show June 15 (17)

I visited Bill Quay Community Farm on Sunday. They were hosting a goat show. I have 3 goats myself but I went to the show to chat to other goat owners, not to show any of my livestock. I also took the opportunity to have a look at the piglets born that morning. Their arrival had been announced to the world by Twitter that morning.

Bill Quay Farm is no longer run by Gateshead Council. A trust was set up to take on the running of the farm and it seems to be going well. Long may that continue.
