Good news for the goats and Prodigal Farm

Prodigal Farm 
in Rougemont is on its way to becoming one of the largest Animal Welfare Approved dairies in the country, thanks to a landowner who saw the INDY story about enterprise, published in March.

In addition, Prodigal is still seeking contributions through its Kickstarter campaign  which ends Sunday, May 18. That same day, Prodigal is inviting the public to see the farm, from 1–5 p.m.

Kat Spann, co-owner of Prodigal Farm, said in an email that the owner of 260 acres of farmland had bought the property to save it from development, and wants to convert the it from a conventional farming operation to a sustainable enterprise.

Prodigal is now renting the land in stages, and renovating the fields into pasture. There are two old farmhouses, one to become a milking parlor for cows—Spann plans to add them to the mix—and the other to be converted into a house for the farm manager.

Prodigal is renowned for its goat cheese, which it makes onsite. The cheeses are available at local farmers’ markets.

"Incredibly racist" strikes me as a bit harsh (not to mention a bit simplistic)

Sure. It's because it refers to a well-known racist stereotype.
