Fall Breedings

We are gearing up to begin fall breedings in the next month or so for a late spring kid crop. We will be using are F2 mini alpine buck, Howie, that we purchased from Sweetwater Farm out of Idaho for all of our kids this year. We have decided that it is time for our Nigerian buck, Orie, to go to his new home. He will be starting a new Nigerian herd with a friend of mine! I hate to see him go, but I know he will be much appreciated at his new home. That means we will have F1 and F2 mini alpines available in the spring. Right now all of our minis are registered through the MDGA (miniature dairy goat association), however, we will be dual registering through TMGR (the miniature goat registry) and will be registering all kids we keep through that registry from now one. However, if you wish to register a kid purchased from us through any other registry, we are happy to help you do that. 

We are also open to shipping goats through the airlines, or even driving kids for the cost of travel. Please do not feel that our goats are off limits just because you might live a distance from good ole Indiana! Please feel free to contact us for any information you may need!
