Annie Goat, born at the Lazy J farm on January 29, rests in the hands of her mistress, Diana Beisner, on a cold February day.
'The Right Stuff
As a goat owner of 20 years, I was delighted to find that the fascinating woman who recently served me coffee in a busy Honesdale cafe was also a goat person. In the course of our conversation, she invited me to visit her farm near Beach Lake.
Since moving from Indiana four years ago, Diana Beisner and her husband have invested countless hours at their Lazy J farm in caring for longhorn cattle, horses and a herd of goats. The name, a traditional one for their acres, is also the name of a rural road that serves the property.
