Goat Town Puts The Backyard To Work

I went back to Goat Town (further coverage here) recently & asked about what they planned to do with the backyard. I had thought that they might offer outdoor seating, but turns out that they decided to grow herbs out there. I’m not exactly sure what is growing there, but from the picture, I can […]
