About HOMESTEAD GOATS Olympia, WA
Welcome to "Homestead Goats", our Nigerian Dwarf dairy goat farm in Olympia, Washington. We have a family run farm with about 20 miniature milk goats on our 15-acre homestead. Our goal is to raise happy, healthy, and high quality ADGA registered, Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats.
My sisters and I have been raising and showing goats for over 10 years now. Our mom has been raising goats, & other livestock, most of her life so she has passed on her love & knowledge of goats to the rest of our family. We all love spending time together tending to and showing our goats.
The health and happiness of our herd is very important to us, so our goats are extremely well cared for and loved. In fact, they are absolutely spoiled! They are well socialized with other animals & people because we give them so much daily love & attention. We've kept our herd healthy and free of caprine diseases such as: CAE, CL, Johnes, Q-Fever, and Brucella, by using biosecurity precautions and doing sample testing. Most recent tests of entire herd were 2/2019 and were all (-).
We've collected some of the best genetic lines from across the country and have worked to continue improving the conformation and productivity of our goats. We've had great success with our Nigerians by using selective breeding, artificial insemination, and ADGA PLUS performance programs such as Linear Appraisal.
We've been incredibly blessed by our family farming endeavors. Homestead farming has been a wonderful way to learn & spend time together as a family. We also enjoy helping others get started on their own homestead farming ventures, and adventures!
♥ Happy Homesteading ♥
