We chose Nigerian Dwarf Goats because of their size, cuteness, sweet personality, and great tasting milk. Their milk has 6-10% butterfat, other breeds only have 2-6%. The higher butterfat makes the milk sweet and creamy. Even thought these goats are small they can produce up to 2 quarts of milk a day. They greet us in the morning like a faithful canine with hugs and love.

Our goats are ADGA/AGS registered. We are proud to say we are a disease free herd. We tested negative for CAE, CL and Johnne's. All new goats added to our herd is tested.
The Goat Herder's Prayer This night, the feedin' all now done, I bow my head in Prayer, And Thank you, God, with my whole heart, for always being there. I remember this morning, as the sun first broke, when I called in the herd, How precious it was to hear YOUR voice ... like my goats listening for MY word. They ran from scattered all about, excited just to see me, Me standing there beside the barn with buckets of feed. I know they place their trust in me, to meet their needs and care. This 'ol barn would be an empty shell were I not waiting for them there. Ain't that how it is with us, God? Like between them goats and me? Life's journey would be so empty, IF YOU weren't there with me. So I thank You, Lord, for every goat that you've placed in my care, And for every lesson that I've learned in this journey that we share. For the miracle of life ... and ... of sacrifice that some are called to serve For we are all your creatures ... together here, And You ... The Master Shepherd. (Anonymous)
