Goat Milk Seminar

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Last week the Source hosted a info seminar regarding products that could be made from goat’s milk. The seminar brought together farmers from the United States and goat farmers from Jamaica to talk about the different products and business potential. Through good conversation and collaboration it was determined that soap made from goat’s milk would be the most feasible. Check back within the year to see how far the project progresses and more importantly, to find ways that you can purchase the handmade soap.

You can see all the pictures from the seminar below.

This event was co-sponsored by the JN Foundation, JMBIC, and the Source.
