We manage our herd organically and naturally with access to large pasture areas every day and test for CAE, CL, Johnes, and Brucellosis. When I get this site all the way updated you will be able to access each goats pedigree. We have good foundational lines in our herd, Screaming Goat Farm, Goat Trails, Green Gables, Sunflower Ranch, and Echo Hills. In the meantime you can Contact me for more information.
Aspen is the easiest of all our goats to milk. She has a soft udder with good teat placement, and large orifaces. This means she produces a lot of milk and it comes out easy and fast when you milk her. This is very good because she is quite a bad little goat on the milk stand. She squats, kicks, lays down, and has even learned how to escape. Regardless, between her genetics and love for food we have worked it out. Since she is so easy to milk, I usually have no trouble filling my bucket while she’s still busy with breakfast!
The name Yaveah is inspired by the Hebrew word for "moon". She was born the week of the Super Blue Blood Moon and as you can see she has beautiful moonspots. A very friendly goat she is always one of the first to come by me when I'm out in the field and she stays near my side. She is long in body and has a nice Roman nose. We may breed her this year in December to Goat Trails Adar. His dam, our Sunflower Ranch Aspen, is a dream to milk with a long lactation. Yaveah's dam, our Screaming Goat Farm Kaitlynne, has great capacity and a high attachment. We are expecting great milk from these two lines.
Honeycomb is another goat that is very easy to milk with nice orafices and a soft udder.

Charity is a quiet goat. She is not shy to come and visit with me, but tends to stay busy with "goat things" like eating, resting, and playing with the other goats. Her mother, our Green Gables Hope of Victory, is a very sweet goat with a great udder. We will wait until next year to breed Charity to Goat Trails Adar in hopes of a softer udder with the same or increased capacity.
Faith is Charity's sister. She is very people social and loves to get attention. Thankfully she stays on all fours and does not jump on me because when she was young I was her trampoline! She has the same coloring and moonspots as her sire, Goat Trails Half Pint. We will wait until next year to breed her also. We are considering breeding her to Screaming Goat Farm Gibor-al as long as they both grow to be about the same size. His dam, our Screaming Goat Farm Kaitlynne, has smaller size teats and Faith's dam, our Green Gables Hope of Victory, has long teats. We'd like to see if we can get something more average in size by pairing these two in 2019
Love this goats face! The white snippet on her nose is how she got her name, but we call her Beauty for her elegant gait and stunning features. She has such a soft and smooth coat with the most tender expressions. We are excited to add her lines to our herd and look forward to her first freshening.
