ELFRIDA — Turning away from two baby goats at Ocotillo Hills Farm and Ranch on Monday, 7-year-old Lillian Talbot ran up to her mom and beamed.
“Momma, one sneezed on somebody’s finger. It sounded like they were blowing raspberries,” she said, before heading back to Peg and Jane, the fledgling goats.
Lillian was one of more than a dozen students from the Fort Huachuca Homeschool Group to get a tour of the newly-started sustainable ranch, which is located just south of Gleeson Road. With just about an acre of her property’s 55 acres developed so far, farm co-founder Alisa Cook said she hopes to offer more workshops, tours and school visits moving forward.
