Goats

We have a small herd and have a limited number of goats for sale.  All goats on our property tested negative in December 2019 for CL, CAE and Johne's.
We register through the National Kiko Registry.
We usually have NKR 100% New Zealand, Purebred and Percentage goats
In March 2020, we look forward to having the following available: 
  • "Purebred" babies
  • "Percentage" 50% Kiko x LaMancha babies
  • "Percentage" 50% Kiko x Nubian babies

[email protected] 303-574-1274
Prices vary and will be decided after evaluating kids at weaning but normally range as follows:
Kikos and Kiko crosses:
  • Wethers $250
  • Bucks $450-650
  • Percentage does $450
  • Purebred does $650
We normally sell our doelings registered with NKR.

Some people like to buy bottle babies because they grow up very friendly.  Kikos are not usually bottle raised, but sometimes we do it once a day because we enjoy having the extra friendly goat kids.

LGB Hondo 836 is the sire of our 2020 babies.  This is a photo of him as a young buck.

"Purebred" goats

We love our Purebred bloodlines!  We like them so much, in fact that we sold our 100% NZ line and prefer to work with this line instead.  That's not to say that they are better than 100% NZ, but we like ours better than the NZ line we originally started with.  Someday we'll probably add another NZ doe to our herd, but in the meantime we are enjoying the fast growing babies this line is producing for us.

Advantages of "Percentage" goats:
Our Nubian and LaMancha dams come from good milking lines and are registered/registerable with the American Dairy Goat Association.  Are you looking for a goat to produce milk for your family or for raising goat babies?  Our Percentage Kiko doelings should produce sweet creamy milk with high butterfat content (from the Nubian or LaMancha side) and carry the hardiness and excellent mothering abilities found in the Kiko genes. I would expect them to produce hearty healthy babies with plenty of milk when they kid.  In addition, the udder quality is much better on these lines, since that is very important in dairy goats.

Are you knew to Kikos?  Buying a registered Percentage doe is an affordable way to get started in the Kiko breed-up programs.  Breeding Percentage does to a 100% New Zealand or Purebred Kiko buck will eventually produce Purebred babies as follows. (Purebred does bred to a 100% NZ buck produces Purebred offspring.)
  1. 50% doe bred to a 100% NZ buck produces 75% offspring
  2. 75% doe bred to a 100% NZ buck produces 88% offspring
  3. 88% doe bred to a 100% NZ buck produces Purebred offspring

Pasture Fed Naturally Raised Goat Meat Chevon

We are adding people to our waiting list for our limited supply of holistically raised, pasture fed goat meat. We don't grain feed our goat kids, so they will be very lean, and won't be pumped full of GMOs.

Most Colorado pastures are sparse and mainly grass. However, we are blessed to be able to raise our Kiko goats in a low area lush with: Golden Currants, Wild Roses, Chokecherries, Stinging Nettle, Poison Ivy, Thistles, and other protein packed weeds (there is some grass too!). Through our weed eating service, our goats have been able to eat a variety of plants on several different properties, while making property owners happy.

Sold out for 2019.  Taking reservations for 2020.


Purchasing process:

Meat goats are sold for a flat rate of $250.  This does not include processing fees.  You choose how you want the meat cut up, by filling out a cut sheet and emailing it to the processor. We bring the goats to the processor, normally in October (Elizabeth Meat Locker in the past) and you pay them directly and pick up your packages of pasture fed goat meat.  


Past average hanging weights have been 35lbs. 

2020 kids should have 6-7 months to grow out so might be bigger. We have started wethering bucks early so they are able to stay with their dam the whole growing process.  The moms continue to nurse so these boys should be milk fed longer than the normal time of 90 days.

Ducks for sale

Muscovy Ducks
Hens are guaranteed to be females! Our combination of colors are sex-linked, meaning we can identify the females by their color.
We prefer to sell our hens and raise the males for meat, but are willing to sell some drakes too if you want some for breeding.

Muscovies are great foragers, so they don't need as much grain. They like to eat grasshoppers, mosquitoes, and other bugs. They also enjoy eating weeds and grass. They forage in and around our gardens and don't bother the plants we care about for the most part (unless they sit on them). They are beautiful to watch and come running to us when it's time to feed them grain. They are smart, curious and fun to have around. They are also quiet, as they don't quack. They make little hissing noises and very gently talk to their babies.

The hens are excellent mothers and are capable of hatching up to three clutches of babies in one year. You can also use them as an incubator to hatch chicken and other bird eggs. 

We have reduced our flock and will have a limited number of ducklings available in 2020.  You are welcome to get on our waiting list and be notified when ducklings have hatched.  I expect babies by May/June 2020.

French White Muscovy duck (Cairina moschata) meat

Try our Muscovy duck at Parker Garage restaurant (seasonal weekend special).  None available in 2020.

We raise French White Muscovy ducks also known as Barbary duck for meat.  Our drakes dress out around 6-7#.  Hens are smaller dressing out in the 3-4# range.  Reserve one today for your next special meal. Limited supply available in the fall.

Whole Muscovy Hen average weight 3-1/2 to 4lbs $49

Muscovy is lean, meaty, and tender. The flavorful meat resembles veal and sirloin steak. Muscovy has a high yield of meat compared with other ducks and 50 percent more breast meat than other ducks. Muscovy breast meat is 99 percent lean and the skin of some have 50% less fat than the Moulard or Pekin varieties! Muscovy ducks have less fat and less calories per pound than turkey.

Muscovy Duck is unlike any other duck you have ever eaten

Eggs for sale

Muscovy duck eggs might occasionally be available.  They are much larger than regular duck eggs.
Chicken eggs $5.50/doz

We are currently feeding conventional grain, in addition to lots of produce scraps from our kitchen.  Our poultry get lots of fresh air and sunshine and the opportunity to take dust baths and chase bugs.

We leave the natural bloom on our eggs, so they do not require refrigeration liked washed eggs do.  Washed eggs available upon request.

Raw Goat's Milk Shares

The Ranch at Li’l Promised Land LLC’s Goat Share Program

We are members of the Raw Milk Association of Colorado.

 

It is illegal to sell raw milk in Colorado.  However, on April 22, 2005 the Governor of Colorado signed into law SB05-055.  With the passage of this law, we are able to offer the opportunity for people to purchase shares in our dairy herd and have access to raw milk.

 

Many people are discovering the benefits of raw goat’s milk.  Goat’s milk is known to be easier to digest than cow’s milk, which is great news for those of us who are lactose intolerant.  It also has many other health benefits, especially if it’s raw.  Worldwide, more people drink goat’s milk than cow’s milk.

 

Pasteurization destroys enzymes, diminishes vitamin content, denatures fragile milk proteins, destroys vitamins C, B12 and B6, kills beneficial bacteria, promotes pathogens and is associated with allergies, increased tooth decay, colic in infants, growth problems in children, osteoporosis, arthritis, heart disease and cancer.    Campaign for Real Milk Web Site a project of The Weston A. Price Foundation - What is Real Milk Web Page  

 

 

Here’s how our program works:

We do not sell milk but sell shares in our dairy herd. You may purchase a share, which is made official with a Bill of Sale.  A Boarding Contract is then signed in which we agree to board, feed, milk and care for your share of the herd in exchange for a monthly Boarding Fee. Each share purchased entitles you to milk from your share of the herd each week. We care for your herd share year round so boarding fees are also due year round. 

 

Goats lactate (produce milk) approximately nine months out of the year. When babies are born in the spring, they get the colostrum and first few weeks of milk. Production peaks one to two months after kidding, stays steady during the summer then gradually decreases in the fall until the dry time when no milk is produced. During the last few months of pregnancy, their milk dries up allowing their body to rest and focus on their growing babies.  Milk distribution normally resumes within the first month after babies are born when we start sharing the milk with the babies.


To join our herd share program, we'll schedule an appointment for you to come tour our little farm and complete the startup paperwork. Cost per share (half share):
  • One time share purchase price: $25 ($12.50 for a half-share)
  • One time jar use fee: $18 per share ($9 for a half share)
  • 1 share boarding fee is $55/month and provides you with approximately one gallon of milk each week
  • 1/2 share boarding fee is $30/month and provides you with approximately half a gallon each week

We are happy to share our Kefir grains and Caspian Sea yogurt cultures with our share holders so you can make your own.  We can teach you how to make your own fresh goat cheese, chèvre.  We usually have extra Kombucha SCOBYs to share as well.

If you are interested in joining our program or waiting list, please email [email protected] or call 303-574-1274

 

Limited shares available!

Fresh chicken and duck eggs may also be available

 

Located in Elizabeth, CO (East of Parker/SE of Aurora)


More information:
We like to use herbal/holistic remedies when possible and only use antibiotics in rare cases, if we feel it is necessary, such as to save a life or in extreme situations.

Their grain is currently conventional and does contain both corn and soy. They eat grain while we're milking them, and not all year around.

We don't spray our pasture and we try to buy hay that is not sprayed, but we've found that many farmers spray once in the spring with herbicides,  because many horse people (who may also buy the same hay) don't like weeds. 

We usually buy third cut alfalfa which is harvested in the fall and hope most of the spray has been out of the plant by then. We haven't found a reliable source of hay from one farmer and end up buying from multiple sources throughout the year (always looking for the 3rd cut regardless of when we purchase it).
