Sophie Gascon’s passion for raising goats is clear to everyone she meets. The young woman undoubtedly has farming in her veins, and has successfully transformed the family’s traditional dairy farm into a thriving goat farm.
Local purchasing: a boon for the economy! Studies are now confirming what we’ve always known but don’t always admit: Not only does buying locally contribute to strong social links and improve the sense of community – it also has concrete benefits for the economies of our rural towns. So much so that every dollar spent locally, particularly at Farmer’s market where the products are locally made contributes between 2$ and 3$ in economic spinoffs – making our community that much stronger!
