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.
Whoopie getting a little quality time.
Thanks to all who spent some time with us at the AgFest.
Pauli, Zippy and I really enjoyed meeting you and hearing all your goat stories. And as usual, Pauli had more than her share of goat cookies.
Zippy and some of her friends will be at the Spring Show, May 28 and 29 at the Edgecombe County Arena, Kingsboro Road exit off Hwy 64, between Rocky Mount and Tarboro. We’ll be there from 8 AM to 8 PM Saturday and 9 AM to 2 PM Sunday if you’d care to visit.
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.
