2015 Kidding!

2015 was the year of reverse badgers!  We had two sets of reverse badger twins and will have two bucklings with this color pattern for sale at weaning.  One buckling is a black and silver and the other is a black and cream.  Both are sired by our Coon Hollow Sebastian and the dams are from old foundation colored angora goat lines.  These reverse badger boys will be $400 each at weaning and are CAGBA eligible.  We also have a white buckling out of two colored parents available.  He can be wethered and would make a great fiber pet.  As a wether, he will be $150.  If you would like him...

Our Sheep

We fell in love with Jacob sheep, after marketing the wool from our friend’s flock for several years.  In 2013, Jacobs came to live at our farm, carefully chosen for fleece quality.  Jacobs are a dual purpose, heritage breed.  They are both two and multi-horned.  These sheep are very hardy and often choose to be out in a snowstorm, rather than in their shelter.  You can learn more about Jacobs at www.jsba.org. ...
