"If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans." - James Herriot
My goats are my pride and joy. Our journey began with dairy goats and they continue to be the foundation of our homestead. When our first son was born in 2012, the search for goat milk began and led us to buying two milking does. We quickly fell in love with the goats and what they provided our family with. We raise them for milk and meat; make soap, lotion, cheese, and more; and spend countless hours caring for and just hanging out with our herd.
We raise standard Nubian goats. Our goats are registered with the American Dairy Goat Association under the herd name Black-Lotus. Our focus is a hardy homestead milker that also adheres to breed standard. We want them to not only look correct, but produce well and thrive on a basic management routine.
