This winter has been very unusual for us and not just due to the records amounts of snow fall! These cold temperatures have reeked havoc on our breeding plans and as such all of our girls will be kidding much later than planned originally this spring.

We plan to retain a daughter from Delilah, Neveah and Ophelia. All others will likely be available for sale but of course we will make those decisions once kids are on the ground!
Reflecting back on 2013 I realize that we had an incredible year! We had many ups and downs in our personal lives but the farm had nothing but successes and growth! We head into 2014 with optimism and hope that we will have another great year.
One of the things we look forward to each New Year is the recycling of Christmas trees! We ask for families to donate their used trees to our goats so that rather than filling the landfills with trees, they can donate them to our herd as a great eco alternative. Our goats love the trees and easily finish off several trees every single day, stripping them of all the needles and most of the bark leaving behind a strange looking tree shaped pile of wood. We have several families and businesses that donate trees to our herd and we are appreciative of all of them!
Some new additions to our farm this past holiday was the purchase of some new technology. We are now in possession of an ultra sound machine which will allow us to monitor and confirm pregnancies much quicker and less invasively. We also purchased a tattoo gun which will also allow us to tattoo our herd identifications onto our goats without them having to endure all the pain of the traditional tattoo method. We are also available for hire for doing tattoos or ultrasounds now! If anyone is interested in hiring these services, please contact us!
