We are raising goats on our
family farm in South Central Virginia. The farm is located at the
base of White Oak Mountain and has been in the family for the past
75 years. Tobacco was the principle product for several years. It
was later fenced for cattle and goats. We are currently raising Kiko
and Kiko-cross goats for market.
We have chosen Kiko goats
because of their ability to forage and browse the pastures (less
bushhogging, less grain), the strong mothering instincts of the
does, and their ability to add weight quickly to their kids to
prepare for market. (See the
Kiko Advantage ). We are
currently cross breeding our Kiko does with Boer bucks to help add
size and muscle for improved market sales.
Our goats are raised primarily
on pasture with minimal grain supplementation. We use antibiotics
only when necessary and de-worm only as needed. We follow the
FAMACHA Guidelines for deworming.
We offer to the consumer “on the
farm” purchase 40-60lb kids for market from May thru November. We
also raise our own replacement breed stock and we often have breed
stock does and bucks for sale to other commercial meat goat
producers. Please check the For Sale page for our current
produce the highest quality market goat
in harmony with nature and with the
amount of human intervention.
