Our goats range from unique purebred to pet quality. We have so many breeds of goats.

  • The fun loving pet pygmy. These are the smallest types of goats. Some people confuse Pygmy goats with Nigerian Dwarf goats which are a great Dairy breed! It doesn't take much feed and they give a nice amount of super rich milk. When you're starting into goat ownership and have children or don't want to deal with large goats, these are a perfect choice! They're usually very colorful and some have crystal blue yes!
  • Saanen goats have the most milk, lower fat count and longest lactation cycle. They're excellent moms, full of personalities but fairly quiet compared to some of the noisier breeds! They look like white angels!
  • The Nubian dairy goats have long pendulous ears, they're sweet, full of personality and comical! They have amazing milk with excellent components for cheese making!
  • The idea of mini is relatively new, with a smaller size animal, the feed/milk ratio is unbelievable.

Hybrid- Snubian- This is a cross from a Saanen and a Nubian. This is the best of both worlds for a big milk volume producer with extra butterfat for a better yield in cheese making.  They're usually colorful with airplane ears!

 

 

 

 

Once you get started enjoying your own fresh milk at home and making cheese, yogurt and Kefir, you will want more goats and more milk! It's healthy and a great way to raise your family! We offer classes and mentor you along the way!

Why get a goat?

Some people want to acquire goats as companions for the family, or for a pasture that has become overrun with weeds, but we're seeing a movement for people to start raising their own food- Dairy is a big part of the grocery bill for young families and farm fresh is the 'in' thing! The health benefits of knowing what's really in what you and your kids are consuming is a huge benefit. In addition,  the animal element is a calming agent as is the work around animals and farm life. It's a real positive for children to work outside and with animals! we all can enjoy being outside and doing physical activities!

Many people sell sheep and goats on the internet, but we stay the course- teaching, following up and being available for questions well after the animals leave our property. If you invest in sheep or goats with us, we want you and the animals to prosper and will help you to do it.
