Nigerian Dwarf Goats

We started off keeping two of these fun and friendly goats for our own milking needs, and are now breeding regularly for year 'round milk production and improvements to our herd.

We are selecting specifically for milking traits and temperament in this lovely miniature dairy goat.

Kids, breeding bucks, milking does and pet wethers may be available depending on the time of year and our need to reduce the size of our herd.

Kidding starts in Spring and we sometimes have Summer and Fall kids available as well.

Our kids are raised with their dams whenever possible, so they can get the full benefit of mother's milk and herd socialization.

But we also spend lots of time handling the kids daily so they're super tame and friendly with their human caretakers.

Kids are generally ready to go to new homes at 10-12 weeks of age.

Highland Cattle

Highland cattle are prized for their very lean beef. They are hardy and self-sufficient animals that don't require shelter, other than shade from the Summer sun.

Though they are a very gentle breed, we have chosen to have our Highlands dehorned as young calves by our vet. This way we have one less thing to worry about when working in close quarters with our cattle.

While we raise our cattle primarily to sell as beef, we occasionally have one or more live animals for sale.

At this time we have decided to reduce our herd. We have sold several cows, calves, and heifers, and currently have one cow remaining for sale at this time.

Dexter Cattle


Dexters are a smaller, dual purpose breed (milk and meat) that are popular with hobby farmers and homesteaders.

They are typically friendly and docile, and require less land and feed due to their smaller size.

All our Dexters are either naturally polled or have been dehorned by our vet, so the calves are also suitable as 4H projects.

We have both black and red Dexters in our herd.

Lambs

We keep two East Friesian ewes for milk, and since lambs are a happy side effect of keeping milking animals, we have a few lambs born every Spring!

As we only wish to keep two milking ewes, we sell our lambs when they are old enough to be weaned, generally around 10 weeks of age. Occasionally we will also raise a lamb or two for meat.

Our 2019 lambs will be a cross of East Friesian and East Friesian/Hampshire/Suffolk.

If you are interested in purchasing a weaned lamb, you can get in touch and we'll let you know when we have some available for you to see.



Chickens


At the moment we are keeping only hybrid laying birds with a focus on egg production, and we renew our flock annually.

We do sell adult laying hens after approximately 12-18 months of laying.

These "experienced" layers are available at greatly reduced prices and will continue to lay for about another year.

We don't currently have any laying hens for sale, but we'll post an update here when we have some available again.
