Hello and welcome to our farm! We are a family of 6 who traded a big house on a city lot for a tiny house on 1.5 acres in 2018. We are located in beautiful Northern California. During the short few years of starting our homestead, we have learned so many new lessons and gained a lot of knowledge. Currently we are raising chickens, ducks, Nigerian Dwarf goats, and more as we grow! Join us on our homesteading journey and hopefully you will learn a thing or two along with us!
Our beautiful herd of Nigerian Dwarf goats is operated by Taylor who has shown them through FFA and at open shows. What started with two goats purchased in 2018 as pets and lawn mowers quickly turned into a passion. All of the goats can be registered with ADGA and our goal is to improve this amazing breed while looking for body confirmation and dairy structure. We currently participate in local dairy goat shows and are looking forward to participating in linear appraisal programs in the near future. Goats make amazing pets as well as milk producers and they do a very good job of keeping pastures mowed. Nigerian Dwarfs specifically are known for producing milk with the highest butter fat content out of any other dairy goat breed. Their small size makes them perfect for smaller homesteads like ourselves! Goat milk is also a great alternative to cows milk for anybody who is lactose intolerant and despite what you may think, goats milk doesn’t taste or smell “goaty” at all!
Our flock of chickens is constantly growing as we discover new breeds and breed some ourselves. We are mainly focusing on developing Olive Eggers as well as Naked Necks that will lay colored eggs. As many people say, chickens are the gateway animal and once you start a flock, you will always want more!
Our newest addition to the farm is Cayuga ducks. We are still learning all about these beautiful birds but we offer hatching and eating eggs as well as ducklings occasionally. Cayugas are flightless, making them perfect for the homestead. They blend right in with the chickens and their biggest perk is that they lay black eggs!
