I’ve loved goats since my first days of going to petting zoos as a child. Besides the angora goats providing beautiful mohair fiber for us, we decided that Nigerian dwarf goats would be a good fit for our small farm. Because of their small size, they don’t require as much space, and I enjoy having fresh raw milk to make soaps and cheeses. Plus they are cute and friendly!
We regularly attend seminars through the NC State Cooperative Extension. Keeping educated about the health of our livestock is extremely important to us. Living in the Southeast with our warm, moist climate is the perfect place for parasites. We implement rotational pasture management and Livamol with Bioworma to try to keep parasite infestation at bay.
Our goats are also registered through the American Dairy Goat Association and some are dual registered with the American Goat Society. Owning and offering goats for sale that are registered and being able to keep track of their pedigree for breeding purposes and/or showing is also something we want to be able to offer to individuals that are looking for Nigerian dwarf goats.
