New kid at the market

RICHMOND — A three-day old black-and-white goat named Ellsa was the star Saturday morning at the new Richmond Downtown Farmers Market.

The Nubian goat mix was brought to the weekly market by Four Sisters Farm. Located off Four Mile Road in Madison County, the farm specializes in goat products.

“I’ve always been fascinated with goats,” owner Melodie Lincavage said.

She noted that goats are excellent livestock for small acreage farms, eat all kinds of foliage and grasses, and their milk is useful for a variety of products. Four Sisters sells lotions and soaps made from goat milk at the market.

The new market is from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays on First Street between West Main and Irvine Streets.
