About Us

We are a small hobby farm located just west of Richmond, VA

We raise ADGA registered Nigerian Dwarf Goats with a focus on correct conformation and high dairy production. We participate in both Linear Appraisal and Milk Test programs, which provide independent evidence of a well built goat and verified milk production records.

While we are a new farm, we are simply thrilled with the genetics that we have started with!  Our goats are raised primarily in the woods, where the parasite load is low and all the stuff they love to eat is found!  And Nigerian Dwarf milk will knock your socks off!  It is sweet, creamy, and not “goaty” at all.  We hope to offer raw milk herd shares in the future. 

We also enjoy caring for fruit and vegetable gardens, a mixed flock of heritage breed chickens, honeybees, and a mixed colony of meat rabbits; but the goats are our primary focus and love.  In fact, I would say the goats have changed our lives.  We hope they bring you the joy they bring us! 

Get to Know Us...

We sell goat kids on a bottle at 3 weeks old with a companion and may offer does in milk after each kidding season.  We own our own bucks and maintain a closed herd (we do not bring other goats here for breeding) and we try to adhere to biosecurity best practices to both protect our herd and any animals you purchase.  Our breedings can be found here along with any available goats

Meet our herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats.  Our herd changes as we retain and sell goats each year, but we try to stay at about 7 does and 2 bucks.  We maintain a current page for each group – meet the Does and Bucks.  

Despite what you might hear, goats do NOT eat just anything.  There are quite a few myths that persist about these amazing animals!  This page includes some of my thoughts and resources that have been helpful in my journey raising goats.
