Our breeding program is founded with proven bloodlines for excellent milk production and high appraisal scores, and we will build from there. Once our foundation animals are in place the herd will be closed, with the exception of an occasion buck purchased for new blood to prevent inbreeding. We will be incorporating the use or Artificial Insemination (A/I) into the herd over the next few years to help expand the foundation's gene pool, using a variety of top sires. Although we no longer show, we remain focused on producing a well-balanced, heavy-milking goat with the ability to excel in the show ring. We raise top quality alpines, lamanchas, nubians and saanens.
RANCH NEWS! Updated 01/11/17:
Please note that I am having problems with my web host compatibility to upload new photos. They discontinued their relationship with the photo server and the program my site is written with, and of course didn't bother to tell me. At this point I will need to scrap this website and start over completely, as soon as I have time to. For now, photos available by email.
All does are bred, now looking forward to kidding season. Depending on the status of the dairy being built, we may need to retain a large number of March and April doe kids for the dairy. We should know with more certainty as we get closer to spring. All May and June doe kids and all bucks will be available.
We have been searching for an "affordable" larger property closer to town for a while now. Not finding anything, we have decided that we will build the dairy at our current location after all, just to get started, and move up in a few years. After all, Starbucks started with one coffee cart.
Breaking news! The saanens are coming! They should arrive here by May 2017.
BUCKS NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH BIOGENICS:
We have collected three of our herdsires with Biogenics, semen now available from:

2017 KIDDING CHART NOW AVAILABLE, please see sales page. We are now accepting reservations for 2017 kids. Most or all May and June kids will be available. Most buck reservations are still available, however we plan to retain many March and April doe kids... if more doelings are born than we need to retain for the dairy herd, the additional kids will be available. For now, only 'interest cards' are currently being accepted for March/April doe kids.
