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!

Elfin Acres NB Flatline

Flatline’s breeder, Marybeth, says that his line has conformation, production, and lovely udders all in a small package. His maternal grandma (Mandisa 2*M 2017 VEEE 90 ALPHA S1 CASEIN B/E), dam Zahra (3*M 2017 VVEV 87), and sister Zalika (4*M) are all still in the Elfin Acres herd and Zalika is mentioned as an exceptional milker with a smaller frame and beautiful conformation. Elfin Acres TT Mandisa certainly is beautifully structured.

Flatline had a tentative start in life and so is aptly named – you can read his story here: you can read his story here.

Lil Bit Country Cyndi Lou

One of our heftier does but also painfully shy, Lil Bit Country Cyndi Lou (Cedar Green Little Raven x Linwood SI Whiskey) is the offspring of one of the favourite milkers over at Yellowpoint. Not only is she a Raven daughter, she is a Thistle Creek Ebony Angel granddaughter and Cedar Green Twilight niece! Cyndi classified VG86 2016.

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!

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.

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.

Peek Into The Rabbitry

What’s Happening In The Rabbitry?

In the spring of 2018, southwestern British Columbia experienced a number of outbreaks of Rabbit Hemorrhagic Virus variant 2 (RHDV2). As a result, we were unable to compete in shows for most of 2018. The virus also caused us to scale back our herd and shut down our breeding program. We look forward to hopefully pulling the herd back into production for the 2019 show season.
