Life On the Farm


A Visit With Friends

Two years ago my interest in goats was sparked --- that was when I met Gloria Scheib, a long time Pygmy and Nigerian Dwarf Goat breeder and fellow herb enthusiast.  She helped me to get started with 2 does, and 2 wethers. I started breeding last year and the herd is growing. We are now up to 17 goats.

In caring for my goats I try to stay as organic as possible.  I use Herbal wormer, also Echinacea for colds. I let them out into the yard once or twice a day to browse.  They love to eat honeysuckle, grass, and (as soon as I turn my back for JUST a MINUTE) my landscape plants.  The goats are well behaved and stay in the yard until I ring a large cast iron bell and they all come running (Dinner!) back into their pens.

I like milking my goats and I raise bottle babies, so the milk is mostly used for the kids.  When not feeding kids, I drink it and bake with it.  Its delicious!

Beginning this year I am testing all the goats for CAE.  I will continue to test annually.

I raise these goats to be wonderful pets. They are fun loving, bring joy and happiness to my life and they will to yours too!
