I wrote an article recently about keeping goats in suburban yards: https://www.permablitz.net/articles/dairy-goats-the-key-to-sustainable-abundance-in-the-suburbs/

For a strawyard for two or three goats, you only need around 6x6m/20x20', but you'll need to bring food to them (the yard can also be designed to have trees next to it to provide some food).
 
Who among you feels worthy enough to be my best friend? Test 1 is to read this tiny ad:
Heat your home with the twigs that naturally fall of the trees in your yard
