Goats

Meet our goats! From left to right we have Holly (doe), Arty (wether), Jupiter (doe), Buddy (buck), the last 2 do not live with us anymore.

For details of each goat, to see breeding plans, and to get on a waiting list, please visit our breeding page

Our focus is to provide perfect homestead goats.

 

 

Our perfect goat is a small goat that is still tall enough to milk comfortably, is friendly, good on the stand, has a good feed to milk ratio, can maintain condition without grains, milking longevity, good mother/breeder, nice udder attachment, good teats for hand milking, gives enough milk for consumption, soap, and cheese, and overall healthy without the use of chemicals.

We find the Mini Manchas fit our needs perfectly. A mini mancha is a mix of a Nigerian and LaMancha goats. Nigerians are known for their sweet milk, it is the highest in butterfat of all goats/cows. Their personalities match their milk, sweet! While LaManchas are known for their high milk production and calm personalities. Blend these together for a Mini Mancha and you have the perfect homestead goat. High butterfat, sweet milk, and calm, friendly personalities. Our goats are like dogs. They follow us around, love scratches, and even walk on a leash (we've taken Arty on many walks). They don't require as much food as full size goats or the same tall fencing. Our goats are all contained with standard 2x4 welded wire fencing. 

 

We are working towards a herd of polled (naturally hornless), blue eyed goats that meet our perfect goat criteria.

All goats have been tested for CAE and Johnnes and we only buy new goats from tested herds.  We have had no diseases on the farm including CL or any abscesses. Upon request from a buyer, a goat can be tested again.
