The fun and the rewards!

Mini Nubians


Mini Nubians are very friendly and sociable! Great personalities and an easy going nature make them excellent for pets or brush clearing. However, udder quality and high butterfat milk production are what we breed for on our farm. I love their personalities, colors, and playful antics, but when it comes right down to it they produce a lot of great tasting milk in a small sized body - less feed needed for them and more milk on the table for us! If you are looking for an addition to your homestead, a family pet, or brush clearer, you are likely to find one of Babka Farms mini's very pleasing and enjoyable! Playful, loving Mini Nubians just might be as good match for your family as they have been for ours!

Dam Raised-Bottle Fed

I primarily let the dams raise the kids. They learn all about grazing, chewing their cud, and herd dynamics from their moms. And since the goats are so friendly, the kids grow up very comfortable playing with humans too. I also bottle feed kids once a day for the first 2 weeks and then a few times a week until weaning. This ensures they will take the bottle if needed. I can let kids go to new homes anytime and the new owner has the option to supplement with a bottle until 12 weeks. 

Owning Mini Nubians

I raise Mini Nubians with high quality dairy lines who are easy to milk and pleasant to be around. In order to ensure we can share these great qualities with others we are very intentional in our choice of herd sires and dams. I sell kids and also have adults and does in milk for sale at certain times of the year. Just inquire and let me know what you are looking for. I'll help make a good match for your enjoyment!

 

Our animals organically and naturally raised. I am happy to share what I've learned for keeping a thriving and healthy herd. Check the For Sale page or send an email to webers@babkafarms.com.

Kunekunes


I'm so amazed at how much I am enjoying my kunekunes. I heard they were nice to be around and I completely agree! They are good on the pasture and come for dinner with green all over their smiling faces. Known as a "round and fat" grazing pig they are a perfect fit. We've had no rooting and only a few fence escapes. The Mini Nubians share their extra milk with the piglets and the kunekune help clean up all that alfalfa and hay the goats waste. And then there is the lovely meat for our table and the lard for our soaps, but that's more practical and certainly not part of the everyday enjoyment our kunekune bring to our farm!

Caramels and Goat Milk Soap


There is such joy in sharing the fruits of our labor with others. I have a cottage food license so at least one end of the sale for caramels  must be in person. Soap can be purchased online without meeting in person. I'm at the Taylor Farmers Market on Main in Heritage Square in Taylor, TX most Saturdays from 10-2. Products are also available online for those in Texas. We just need to determine a place to meet or I can ship to you if we met in person prior to the sale. You can always arrange to come out to the farm and visit the animals while you are here!





Family: Where we get our name

Day-to-day operations at Babka Farms are run by Natalie Babiak Weber in Granger, Texas. Our two grown daughters, Rachel and Gabrielle, live close to our hearts all the way in NY. Natalie's father, Charles Babiak, was orphaned at age 5 with 2 younger siblings. He spent his early years during the Great Depression with caring relatives. The siblings grew up together and as a child and teenager he worked at local farms to help support his brother and sister. Natalie spent many hours with her Dad both in their backyard garden and picking strawberries at Thorpe's Organic Family Farm. Gabrielle married Elijah Thorpe. Elijah and Gabrielle have a woodcrafting business. Rachel is the barn manager at both High Time Stables at Sugarbrook Farm and Alpine Made taking care of their herd of organic dairy goats. We love raising quality farm animals and crafting artisan products!

Babka is a root word for  Natalie's maiden name Babiak and it is the Polish word for "Grandmother". The farm name is a tribute to Natalie and her sister Mary's mother, Martha Huttleston Babiak. Although she passed on to heaven early and before even all her grandchildren were born she left a legacy as an amazing grandmother and matriarch. She loved quality driven by dedication in all aspects of life and nourishing, well made food. It is with great love and admiration that we share our lives with you though the gifts our parents nurtured within us.
