Our hens are fed a certified organic feed and we do not medicate them. They spend their time on our farm roaming happily with plenty of pasture to dig in and eat. This means that our eggs are more nutritious than eggs laid by hens that live in confinement. Eggs that you buy from us contain less cholesterol and saturated fat, more beta carotene, more folic acid, more vitamins A, D, & E, and more omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Eggs are $7/dozen; call/text or email us to arrange pickup from the farm. We do have some delivery options as well.
We select for health, hardiness, temperament, production and physical conformation in all of our breeding stock. We avoid routine deworming and medicating. We are passionate about producing healthy food in an environmentally responsible way.
Why Nigerian Dwarfs?
Nigerian Dwarfs trace their ancestry back to West African origins, but their development for dairy qualities occurred later in Texas and is attributed to two breeders: Kathleen Clapp and Sharla Parker. The breed has seen more rapid development over the last 20 or so years and Nigerians have become known for their dairy qualities, friendly personality, and colourful coats (NDGA 2017). We chose Nigerian Dwarfs because of these breed traits. Our small children enjoy the sweet rich milk that is higher in butterfat content than other breeds. We appreciate the small size and gentle personalities of the goats around our little kids and the children of friends and family that we often have visiting. Their attractive array of coat colours make for many surprises at kidding time and the goats make wonderful pets as does and wethers.
Meet Our Nigerian Dwarfs
We are focused on breeding our registered Nigerian Dwarf goats for strong dairy character, conformation and production. We are carefully building our foundation herd with individuals bred by top Canadian breeders and descended from US imports. Our goats come from disease-tested herds, are free of CL abcesses and are tested CAE and Johne’s negative since 2016.
Wonderland GJ Landslider
Slider is a handsome chamoisee buck with a great dairy lineage. He is out of Stormwatcher My Charlotte (Reserve Champion ND Senior Doe at North Thompson Fall Fair 2016) to US import Cammana OMF Gold Jackpot. Charlotte’s sire is US import Odds Are D Mighty Midas. With strong US breeding on both sides of his pedigree and a great top line and rump length, we have high hopes for Wonderland Landslider and look forward to seeing his first kids on the ground in 2018!
Outlaw’s Blue Taffy
This gorgeous buckskin girl is the star of our spring 2018 kidding lineup! With a lineage of friendly goats Taffy comes by her sweet and easy-to-handle personality honestly. She really is a natural for home dairy production; never even needing to be trained to the milking stand! She has good size, angulation, great foreudder attachments and udder floor, and good sized teats and orifices with quick milk let-down. With US sire Camanna FS Sudden Impulse known for milk production, she is moonspotted, polled and blue-eyed and she is sure to be the whole package!
Linwood Hailey’s Comet
Hailey is our herd queen bee and character goat. This social girl is always getting into mischief and is a favourite with our children. She is a smaller-statured girl with blue eyes and good depth of body and rump width and she throws longer-legged daughters. She has a strong dairy lineage.
Lil Bit Country Southern Dawn
We are thrilled to have a Thistle Creek Ruby Tuesday girl in our herd and wait for her first freshening with great anticipation. Ruby’s girls are known for great milking temperament, udder conformation, and capacity. Her US imported sire is no slouch either; Camanna’s CIB Hennessy has a great dairy lineage. This girl is one to watch!
van H’s Will-o’-Wisp
Willow is a pretty jet-black blue-eyed girl with good body length and rump width. She has inherited her sire, Linwood SI Whiskey’s, excellent topline and hopefully his strong milking lineage as well! Her dam, our Happy Hoof Acres Dixie, was a productive first freshener and we expect this little gal will have good capacity as well.

We are Steve(full-time teacher, greenthumb grower extraordinaire, builder and fixer of all things farm) and Marie(work-at-home web designer and artist, flock/herd manager and animal husbandry guru), and our farmhands are: Caleb, Levi, and Anna. Our children are still very young but they participate fully in our farm activities and their responsibilities continue to grow just as they do! Caleb and Levi take their jobs very seriously and these include: helping to collect eggs, harvesting fruits and vegetables, bringing the grain rations out to our lactating does, and most importantly, playing with the goat kids and farm cats and exploring the beautiful natural setting of our farm. Our farm is located in pastoral south Langley, British Columbia, Canada. Thank you for supporting our family farm!
