The Freestone County Goat Breeders Association was formed in 2005 for county residents to use as a forum and for assistance in marketing, husbandry, and animal care for primarily meat goats, but anyone with goats or an interest in them is invited to join. Members approved by-laws in 2006 inviting the residents of Anderson, Henderson, Leon, Limestone, and Navarro Cos. to join the Association. Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Freestone County Courthouse in Fairfield. Events planned include two sales a year and field demonstrations.
