New, from Utah!
Hello and welcome!!

I've known a couple of people who leased land for their goats, but of course it's not ideal. The main thing is to make sure someone is always around to keep an eye on them. They need a strong, secure fence that goats can't escape or destroy and that predators can't penetrate. Predators are your #1 concern with goats, but they can also fall victim to entanglement, eating trash that blows into their enclosure, eating toxic garden cuttings that people feed them over the fence, etc. You need to be sure that someone has their eye on the pasture for any of these problems. Unfortunately goats aren't like cattle or horses that can be turned out and largely left unattended as long as they have food and water. They're more vulnerable because of their small size, their endless curiosity, and their explorative appetites. Even with those things in mind, some people have found safe places to board their goats. Some people love having goats around as long as someone else is taking care of them and maintaining the fences!

The North American Packgoat Association ( shows quite a few members in the SLC area. If you join NAPgA you have access to their contact information through the members-only section of the website. It only costs $20/year to join.

Best of luck to you!
