We have been raising Alpine Dairy goats here east of Raleigh since 1991, and have been ADGA and NCDGBA members since 1992. We are also founding members of the Johnston County Goat Producers. While we are not a commercial dairy, we still love to milk and show our goats and, who knows, we may have a real dairy in our future. If you’d like to visit for a while to shop for soap or goats or just to get a goat fix, feel free to email or call us for an appointment. Sadly, our insurance will no longer allow us full farm tours, but we’d still love to have you visit and view from afar.
Spring 2018 is here and with it a new crop of kids. 2017 ended with quite a bang; I’ve NEVER been so low on soap since first starting. I’m going to be keeping the website a lot more up to date this year as Facebook may make it harder to connect with everyone. (Our Facebook page: Arrowhead Goat Farm)
Things the Arrowhead Farm goats will be doing in 2018, other than having baby goats: the Got to Be NC AgFest at the NC State Fairgrounds on May 18 through May 20. The NC Dairy Goat Breeders Spring Show outside Rocky Mount the following weekend: May 25 through 27. Several NC Dairy Goat Breeders regular meetings, the NC State Fair in October and the Johnston County Goat Producers Annual Field Day in Smithfield on November 3!
So please check back here periodically and make sure to ‘Like’ and ‘Comment’ on our Facebook page in order to stay in the loop!
Our Mission Statement: The goal of our herd is to raise happy, long-lived and productive animals. We keep our babies on their dams. We realize that dam-raising rarely stretches the udder to maximum capacity, but the trade-off is an animal who will keep milking well into her teens, and healthy babies. Oh, and the time not spent in cleaning bottles and bottle raising is instead used to play with baby goats; it’s the best therapy in the world. -Gordon & Leslie Averill
