Sharing the Cornerstones of homesteading and good farm living.

2013 Spring kids have all been born!!

Keep us in mind if you may be interested in some goats for 4-H (both market wethers and showing), pets, breeding stock or the freezer.  Our next round of kidding will be in October/November 

Average cost for 4H market wethers will be around $125.00. 

NOTE: At the end of each kidding year we will move the page into a sub-page of the main kids page.  See also the "past kids" page for other kids born on the farm.

Please also note that due to limited space, we have most of our pictures located on our Facebook farm page.   See individual listings below for direct links to each kids album.

Breeding Line-up for 2013 Spring Season

This year was harder than any other to determine exact kidding dates as we used immature bucks on our girls. We seperated our herd into breeding groups beginning 8/8/12 and although we tried to observe breeding activity, it was hard to tell exactly when any of the girls were bred.  Is there a particular pairing you may be interested in the offspring?  Let us know!!

This guy should make a nice herd sire for a small herd of meat goats….he will have the nice hybrid vigor of mixing some popular meat goat breeds. With Mo, you will have the meat genetics without caring for a huge herd sire. With is gentle demeanor he will also make a super pet
