SHEEP AND GOATS
What started as a few pet type additions to be used in our live nativity 15 years ago, has grown into a unique division for a growing market for sustainable family farms. We help families learn about the uses, care, and qualities as well as the natures of sheep and goats.
Debbie Webster is the President and Regional director of SC sheep industry which is part of the American Sheep Industry.
One Reason to get your start here with our sheep and goats- we spend time with them and their future owners! We want them and you to prosper! We pay attention to details, health and care deeply for our animals. We love to share whatever we've learned to help you help your animals.
Sheep and Goats can be pastured together with a few precautions as goats need copper supplement in their diet and sheep can't take the copper. They get along well and have the same needs in fences, shelters and proteins.
We share our love for the animals and the lost ‘art’ of shepherding with the Biblical principles that change lives through bible camp in the summer and classes, tours and events throughout the year.

You never know what new things you might on the farm.
The Dairy and Cheese making Facility
Goat milk has become very popular in the last few years for those with lactose intolerance. It's easy to digest especially for children, infants and elderly. Our goat herd has a majority of Saanens which have the lower calories as well as a mild taste. Our sheep milk has gained quite a growing number of people using it for their infants and toddlers with health issues. It has 2-3 times more protein than goat milk and a rich sweet flavor as well as the ease in digestibility as with goat milk. In 8 ounces of sheep milk, the protein can be 14 grams! Our sheep milk yogurt is sweet and thick and the Kefir has outstanding health benefits. The milk from the Ewes is the 'liquid gold' in cheese making!
We see a growing interest in the dairy aspect of sheep and goats. For our family, we have been making cheese for years for family and friends, but thought it was time to sell to the public. We've started a DHEC approved and licensed Grade A Raw Milk Dairy for Goat and sheep milk as well as a licensed cheese making facility. We have the only licensed sheep milk dairy in all of SC! We use our own milk to make Nationally Award Winning cheeses and dairy products ranging from yogurt, kefir, hard, soft, Ricotta, and spreadable cheeses.
