These treats are natural, easy to make, and a delicious snack for goats! The ingredients are linked to amazon affiliates, from which a small commission will be earned to support future blog posts, videos, and our lovely goats (find more about them on Instagram). So if you can, please purchase directly from those links, any and all support would be greatly appreciated.
1 1/4 cup Flaxseed Meal
2-3 cloves Garlic (crushed)
2 tablespoons Raw Organic Honey
4 tablespoons Water
A few sprigs of Thyme
*We dehydrate with the Excalibur Dehydrator. Purchase that HERE!*
Mix ingredients together. Spread dough onto parchment paper to no more than 1/4″ inch thick. Place entire parchment sheet onto dehydrator rack.
Dehydrate at 135 degrees fahrenheit, for 10-12 hours (or until desired texture is reached). Timing may vary based on dehydrator brands, humidity, etc.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DEHYDRATOR, you can bake treats in your oven at the lowest possible temperature; but remember the foods/herbs might not contain the same nutritional values.
PLEASE NOTE: I do not use these treats instead of the regular dose garlic or thyme that I already give. It is simply and “extra” snack, and I still feed the goats a normal garlic regimen.

I am in no way a “goat expert” and my opinions are only that of personal experiences, and my insights shared are not medical treatment suggestions, care suggestions, or any directions for raising goats at all. Recipes are subjective to individual goats. If an allergic reaction or negative side effects occur, that is due to your own goat’s intolerance, and please consult your veterinarian. I am simply sharing my own personal opinions. Any and all changes to your goats’ health regimen, care, etc. should be approved by a veterinary professional or licensed professional. I also believe that every goat owner has their own way of doing things, so just as my opinions are my own, and cannot apply to anyone else, your opinions are also regarding your individual goats, and I welcome you to share them in a kind, constructive manner.

I just bought a thyme plant and Im gonna try this!
You can even give the thyme sprigs raw as nice healthy treats on their own! My goats love them!
