Fresh Eggs

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.

Sustainability

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.

Happy Hoof Acres Dixie

Dixie was always a shy girl but she came into her own with her first kidding and is a fantastic mother. She has nice length and depth of body and produced 2 1/2 cups on a 12-hour fill for us every morning as a first freshener. Dixie is a cou clair with blue eyes.

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.

Due to the very high demand for kids, we recommend that you place a reservation prior to kiddings in order to secure your kids. We ask for a deposit of $50 per kid. Wether reservations will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. For doeling/buckling reservations you may indicate a preference for a specific pairing from our list of breedings. If the kid that you hoped for is not available your reservation can be transferred to an unclaimed kid or refunded in full. Reservations are made in the order that they are received. We reserve the right to retain kids regardless of reservations.

Bucklings and wethers are ready to go home with you at eight weeks of age and doelings will be let go when they are twelve weeks old.

Non-reserved kids and mature goats will be listed individually for sale and can be reserved with a deposit of 50% of the purchase price.

Our prices are as follows: $450-$650 for registered doelings and bucklings, $250-$300 for wethers.

Your purchase of a goat kid from us includes registration with the Canadian Livestock Records Corporation and tattoos (for bucklings and doelings), disbudding, and vaccination for Clostridium Perfringens Types C&D and Tetanus. We do not offer a health guarantee on goats beyond guaranteeing that they are of sound health upon leaving our farm. We do not guarantee that kids will not develop scurs after disbudding. Payments can be made by cash or e-transfer.

 

Satin Rabbits

The Perfect Breed for Backyard Production

We raise show-calibre Satin rabbits in black, blue, broken, chocolate, and otter. We have been raising these jewel-like rabbits for over 18 years and find them to be the perfect fit for backyard show and meat production. Satins have calm personalities, good mothering instincts, hardiness, and a beautiful and unique sheen to their fur. Unlike most of the other commercially-typed breeds, they come in a vibrant array of varieties and your nestboxes can be a rainbow of colour! Show-calibre Satins bred to the American Rabbit Breeders Association’s Standard of Perfection have medium bone and excellent feed conversion efficiency, carcass quality, and meat-to-bone ratio. With all of these qualities and a luxurious coat of fur unlike any other commercial breed, we can’t think of a better breed of rabbit to raise on our homestead.
