On my way to South Carolina last year, someone suggested I check out the small historical town of Pendleton, if I had time, for it wasn't too far from where I was staying. On a Thursday afternoon I found myself on Route 88, which took me right to the center of this small town. It was nearing 4:00pm as I rounded a bend that led to the Village Green. There in front of me was a big banner reminding folks about the Pendleton Farmers Market, Thursdays at 4p - 6p, on the Village Green. Lynn and I looked at each other - let's go! At the market I discovered a wonderful new product I had never heard of before: goat milk fudge. It had won several top awards, as had the goat cheese that was also displayed on the table. I learned the farm was just a few miles away and the woman who offered samples suggested I go visit?which I'm glad I did, for I met goat farmer Evin J. Evans, of Split Creek Farm . When she was a teenager she had her first encounter with a goat, and as she tells people who ask 'How come you got into goats?' she answers, "I didn't get into goats, they got into me." She now has 350 goats of varying ages and she knows them all by name (none are ear-tagged by a number) on her small dairy farm.
