Rainwater Harvesting For the Goats – With DIY First Flush

After the move to it’s new location and the re-purposing to a hay barn for the goats, the rain roof is finally getting back to its roots…. Rainwater Harvesting! In the video I’ll show you how I set up the PVC downspouts, created a DIY first flush system, incorporated an IBC tote for storage, added a water trough and float valve for the goats to have fresh water. And of course…. I’ll show a bit of good ol’ footage of the goats playing and having a good time! NOTE: for those wondering about if I will paint or cover the IBC tote…. yes I will 😉

And thanks to Mike at for sending me the awesome leather patch hat!

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions!
