We raise Nubian and Lamancha goats for milk and meat. We also offer goat kids in the spring. Our goats have a large enclosure with all kinds of things to play on as well as access to our back woods where they can browse and be goats!!
We do not show our goats. However, we are proud to be able to say that our herd is from Fox's Pride Dairy Goats in Mont Vernon, NH.
Fox's Pride is a competitive show herd with many decades of experience that strives to produce high quality dairy goats that excel in conformation, health, longevity and milk production. Click the button below to visit their website.
We are blessed to be part of the Fox's Pride family and continue to strive for the same characteristics in our dairy goat herd.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions or to reserve Spring kids.
One thing that makes us unique is the way we raise our kids. We use a combination of dam raising and bottle feeding. Our kids are kept with their dam 24/7 for the first 2-3 weeks of their life. They are then separated at night with hay, water and grain. This allows their dam to fill with milk for morning milking.
Dams are milked once daily in the morning after being separate from their kids for the night. The kids are given a bottle in the morning, which helps to make them just as friendly (but not quite as needy) as bottle babies. The kids are then let out to spend the day with their dam nursing freely all day.
We find this system works well for us, the dams, and the kids. It is less stressful for the goats and less work for us. Since we do not show and do not rely solely on milk production, this system works for us. But we also understand that there is more than one right way to farm and some goat herds must do things differently.
