Nanny Goat

Nanny Goat


Across the street from the USU-Tooele Campus there is a small family farm. The goats are friendly and people are welcome to pet them. There is even a vending machine with a variety of goat treats that you can give the goats.

I grew up hearing stories about the Hairup Farm ranging from inducing labor before a storm so the town doctor could make it to the house, collecting eggs from chickens, or playing cards for entertainment.  Life was tough making just enough to survive, nothing extra.  The New Deal brought shocking changes to the lives of my family.
