HOWDY Y’ALL!

We’re just a family raising a sweet herd of miniature Nubian goats in deep east Texas!

We’re passionate about our little herd and about creating structurally correct goats with high milk production, strongly attached udders, low maintenance easy keepers, that have beautiful breed character.

Our girls are not penned goats that lay around eating hay and feed all day. They are browsers and grazers and are constantly improving our pasture and are out foraging for the majority of their diet as well as getting plenty of getting exercise. 

We breed for soft pliable udders that remain tight against the body with teats above the hocks that are a joy to hand milk. We expect our girls to milk at about a gallon a day without having to be force-fed high amounts of grain and utilize minimal alfalfa as well as having a will to milk!

And there will be goats’ milk enough for your food, For the food of your household,

Proverbs 27:27

What is a Miniature Nubian?

The Mini-Nubian is the result of a cross of a Nigerian Dwarf and a Nubian initially. Those crosses are then bred to each other to continue the breed. Mini-Nubians are mid-size goats, ranging in between Nigerians and Nubians as far as height, however, they can rival most average Nubians in milk production! You get almost the same amount of milk as the Nubian with a touch more butterfat from the Nigerian. They have wonderful personalities and color patterns to boot!

Our Minis produce anywhere from a half-gallon a day up to a gallon and a half per day, averaging at a gallon! When looking for a dairy animal, you want to look at records of what they produce, and if possible, milk the animal itself! Dairy goats are a big investment but the rewards and benefits are priceless!
