Your Source For Goat Information and Gear
Marc Warnke, known as the goat guy at Packgoats.com, is your source for goat information and gear. The desire started 9 years ago when he wanted his family to join him in the backcountry. But having small children, and his at the time wife barely at 115 pounds, carrying all the gear was unrealistic. Researching stock animals, goats were the dream critter to own, being affordable and easier to care for. The problem was there was not much information to raise or care for nor finding the proper gear. Today, Packgoats.com has been reached globally to hobby goat owners, homesteaders, 4-H projects, and goat packers. We have created resources to help you raise, train, and learn all things goats.

Pandemic Inspires Goat Owners
The pandemic had inspired families to become more sufficient. When products were sold out, unavailable for weeks or even months, families turned to the homestead lifestyle. Homesteading has many meanings, to some, it was to grow their own vegetables, raise meat animals, have eggs, and have access to an abundance of milk. Many people don’t have the space to have large animals. Goats are the best choice on the farm. They produce milk, are raised for meat, control brush, and are the best companions.
