Who Wants To Buy The (Goat) Farm?

The Bittners have put their 5-acre property and certified goat dairy up for sale.

If you’re in the market for a goat farm and creamery, John and Joyce Bittner may have a deal for you. They’ve been married for more than 50 years, and after living in Scottsdale, they moved to Strawberry, northwest of Payson, where they own The Ranch at Fossil Creek.

They’re retiring after a couple decades in business, and are looking for a buyer.

"There are a lot of people out there who are tired of the corporate world perhaps, tired of the weather, perhaps, where they're at and just want a lifestyle change," Joyce said. "That's exactly where we were 20 years ago."
