Men and women who have tried to sell a home are likely familiar with the phrase "curb appeal." Curb appeal is similar to getting ready for a big date, only you're not dressing yourself up to make a strong first impression.

Becky Wise, a native Oklahoman and retired music teacher, moved to the Antlers/Rattan area in June of 2011, but opening a Goat Dairy was not in her list of plans.
â€śWhen we moved here we didnâ€™t plan on this,â€ť Becky said. â€śWe built the barn for storage purposes and planted hay in our field. Goats were not in the realm of things we intended to do.â€ť
Boy where they wrong! When the hay was cut, Middle Mountain Dairy, a goat dairy in the Sardis Lake area, purchased the hay. Becky followed them back to help deliver the hay. That is when she got her first goat and plans started to develop.
