Kiko goats
We raise Kiko goats including NKR 100% New Zealand and Purebreds.  We use them to manage weeds while growing them for natural pasture fed meat.  See our For Sale page to see what's available.

We test our whole herd annually for CL, CAE and Johne's.  We are happy to show you the test results.

We register with the National Kiko Registry (NKR).

We chose the Kiko breed as a hardy alternative to Boer goats for economical meat production.  The breed was developed in New Zealand in the 1980's by crossing feral goats with domesticated dairy goats.  They are known to have higher successful birth rates, are excellent mothers with good milk production, fewer parasite and hoof problems, are great at foraging for their food, and they don't need pampering in inclement weather.  They come in a wide variety of colors and looks.

Dairy Goats

We raise Nubian, LaMancha and now Kiko cross does for delicious creamy milk with high butterfat to make the best cheese and sweet milk.  We test our whole herd annually for CL, CAE and Johne's.
Limited shares of our raw goat's milk are available through a herd share program. See our For Sale page for information about our share program. Inquire if you are interested: [email protected]

Muscovy Ducks and Drakes

We love our Muscovies!  We raise regular beautifully colored Muscovy Ducks and are thrilled to have added the rare French White Muscovy Ducks to our flock in October 2016. 


The French White Muscovies were bred in France by the parent company Groupe Grimaud, who has been raising Muscovy ducks since 1965. They worked to produce a purebred, faster-growing meat duck.  Drakes are known to reach 12 lb in 12 weeks!  They still maintain the wonderful qualities of regular Muscovy ducks: great foragers, excellent mothers who hatch their own ducklings and they take good care of their babies.


We plan to maintain our own breeding stock and improving it through selective breeding.  

 

We handle our babies and they are good foragers, so should make nice pets or producers. Let us know if you are interested in making a purchase: [email protected]

Exotic Muscovy duck meat is favored by gourmet chefs around the world. Connoisseurs know that it is nothing like other duck meat. It is in a class of it's own being 98-99% lean and any fat rendered is considered "liquid gold."  It is meaty and flavorful, similar to sirloin steak and other red meat.

Muscovy ducks (Cairina moschata) are the only domesticated ducks not derived from the Mallard, and are native to Central and South America.  They produce significantly more breast meat than Pekins or other ducks and the meat is 40-50% leaner.  Muscovy meat is leaner with fewer calories than turkey.  Barbary duck is the term used for C. moschata in a culinary context.

Ducks

Our son has a duck business and sells duck eggs as well as ducklings.  Breeds of ducks he currently has include:

Chickens/eggs

We have a small flock of happy chickens and have farm fresh eggs for sale. We leave the "bloom" on our eggs (they are unwashed), so they do not require refrigeration.  Washed eggs are available upon request.
Inquire for availability: [email protected]
Duck eggs $6/dozen
Chicken eggs $4.50/dozen

Bees

We were blessed to be given a swarm of bees in spring of 2016.  We are following the Warré method of beekeeping and as of spring 2019 they are still thriving.  We harvest a small amount each fall leaving enough for the bees to overwinter.
