Ranching with Jonica
By Jonica Bradley
Jonica is a writer, painter, and a poet who spends her days on her goat and sheep ranch with her family, her dairy goats, Joy and JJ, a flock of hair sheep, a herd of meat goats, a handful of chickens, ducks, a llama, Marylin, a colony of honeybees, two dogs, two cats, and a baby hog nose snake. A relative new comer to the Texas Panhandle, she has left behind her city ways and wholeheartedly taken up the country life.
In the kitchen, she enjoys cooking farm fresh meals straight from the garden, coop, or pasture. Jonica makes all manner of goat cheese and enjoys fermenting fruits and vegetables grown just outside the kitchen door.
