Meet "Cherokee", our farm mascot. Born on the farm in 2004, she has always been around goats, and enjoys their company.
In 1999 we purchased the foundation stock for our Saanen dairy goat herd from Rock Point Farms. We knew at the time that we wanted disease-free stock, but we did not know anything about dairy goat bloodlines. We accidentally stumbled onto some of the best genetics in the Saanen breed in our state, and have learned to love these beautiful, quiet and productive animals.
From our original three Saanen does, we built a herd of about 50 animals, but now maintain a small herd that meets the needs of our family, allowing us to make milking does available for purchase each year. We have been very active in the dairy goat industry in our state and on a national level as well. Our herd is Certified, Accredited, and tests negative for CAE. We have been Scrapie Certified since November 30, 2005. We have shown our animals throughout the Southeast and have developed a very competitive herd. We have participated in DHI testing and Linear Appraisal and have been pleased with the performance of our animals.
When we purchased our first goats, we also bought a pair of Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs to protect our herd.
Today the farm bustles with activity. Our current pony "mascot" is Cherokee, a laid-back Welsh-cross mare who enjoys the company of the goat herd. Goat kids bounce around the pasture, and the milkers continue steady production. The Pyrenees run back and forth in the pasture, always on the watch for predators. Children run back and forth caring for the animals and playing in the expansive yard. Allow yourself to relax and enjoy the experience of farm life as you view each page of our site.
We maintain a clean herd, testing annually for TB, Brucellosis, and CAE. Our animals are abscess-free, and the herd is Certified and Accredited, and has consistently tested CAE negative according to the WSU ELISA test. We have attained the status of Scrapie Certified as of November 30, 2005, and SCRAPIE EXPORT CERTIFIED in 2010.
We dam raise our kids since we feel that this method produces healthier, faster growing kids, and we only maintain negative animals. All of our kids are handled extensively so that we have no behavior problems. All of our goats have free access to pasture and deciduous forest. Our milkers are also fed alfalfa hay and Southern States Dairy Gold. We administer CD/T, and Rabies vaccinations, and worm as needed according to FAMACHA and fecal egg counts. Antibiotics are given only when necessary.
