In the Tuscany episode of the first season of Dream of Italy on PBS, Kathy visits a goat farm started by an American expat.
American expat Nora Kravis started Italy’s first cashmere goat farm in 1995. Chianti Cashmere Farm in Radda in Chianti is open to the public every afternoon between 4 and 7 p.m. from Easter until the end of October. An organized group tour is 5€. There’s a store at the farm where you can buy luxurious scarves and blankets and even soap made from goat milk. Nora runs a Goat Camp each May, where guests can stay for several days and get involved in the goats’ care. You can also “Adopt A Kid” and follow its progress. Nora rents out a small house on the farm. For more information, visit: www.chianticashmere.com
