We started out with four dairy goats. Not having enough time to milk but wanting more goats we decided to add Boer. At first we added some Nubian Boer crosses. As we added pure Boer we started noticing worms were a problem. We looked for options to improve our herd. We then discovered Spanish goats. Spanish goats were the original brush goat known for their hardiness and resistant to parasites. In 2013 we purchased Smokey(smoke ridge bred) from Waverly Farms, who had used him as a breeding buck for a few years. We also keep a pure Boer buck(Gruff) to cross back to the Spanish does in order to keep muscle. In 2016 we added Yoda a half Savannah quarter Kiko quarter Boer. We also kept a pure Spanish out of Smokey and PJ(Pape,Valera, Baylis, and Smoke ridge) named Jose. In 2016 we started a pure Dairy herd by adding a doeling, doe and a buck. The milk from the dairy goes to the making of our soaps and we supplement our pigs.
