The Hermit at Hermit Pond Farm
I came to this scenic spot in the hills of Central New York as a refugee from city life in Chicago about 25 years ago. The quiet beauty of the woods and fields suits me well, and it has turned out to be a fine place to raise cashmere goats and assorted stray cats. At the moment, it is home to about 75 cashmere goats and 9 cats. The cats all arrived at random intervals, but the goats are the result of 22 years of careful breeding for fine fiber and solid conformation.
