HOME OF REGISTERED FAINTING GOATS, REGISTERED AND UNREGISTERED NIGERIAN DWARF GOATS, UNREGISTERED PYGMY GOATS AND REGISTERED MINIATURE DONKEYS.
LAST UPDATED 8/6/18 I am working on getting new pictures of all the goats. Only a few more to go.
Welcome to our small hobby farm located in Medford, Wisconsin. On our little hobby farm we raise Fainting goats, Nigerian Dwarf goats, Pygmy goats and Miniature Donkeys. We didn't start out with all of these critters, it all began with a pygmy goat named "Griffin" , a Nubian named "Gus" and a very wonderful horse named "Unbreakable Victory"(Vic for short). They were my daughters 4H projects. We also started out with "Bear" our cocker/beagle mix dog. Griffin, Vic,Gus and Bear have since passed away but they are never forgotten.
We truly love our animals and hope you will too. Every effort is taken to prevent disease and promote happy healthy animals. Check out some of our breeding stock and for sale page.
WE NOW HAVE A CLOSED HERD. THIS MEANS WE WILL NO LONGER BE BRINGING IN ANY NEW GOATS. WE WILL JUST BE KEEPING OUR OWN YOUNG STOCK TO ADD TO OUR HERD. WE DO NOT SHOW OUR GOATS SO THEY NEVER LEAVE OUR FARM.
Strangers are just friends we haven't met yet!!!!
Thank you for visiting our hobby farm on the web. Please contact us with any questions or comments.

"Becky Sue" She is the one that made me fall in love with the fainting goats. She is and always will be my favorite doe. I have retained a few of her daughters, granddaughters and great granddaughters. We had to make the hard decision to put Becky Sue to rest February 2018. She was 15 yrs old. I got Becky Sue when she was 2 yrs old. She will never be able to be replaced. Good Bye my dear Becky Sue. I will love you forever.
We started raising pygmy goats and Nigerian Dwarf goats in 1998.
This is our Nubian wether "Gus" He was one of our first goats. Gus is 16 yrs old in this picture which was taken May 2010, we have had Gus ever since he was 2 months old. He is our babysitter for the little ones after weaning.
I took this picture of Gus October 2, 2011 he is starting to show his age but still going strong at 17 yrs old.
GUS PASSED AWAY TODAY 3/4/13. HE WOULD HAVE BEEN 19 YRS OLD THIS SUMMER. HE WILL BE MISSED. WE GOT GUS WHEN HE WAS 2 MONTHS OLD. HE WAS A FRIEND FOR MY DAUGHTER'S PYGMY GOAT GRIFFIN WHICH WAS HER FAIR PROJECT. WE LOST GRIFFIN TO URINARY CALCULI BEFORE WE KNEW VERY MUCH ABOUT GOATS. NOW GRIFFIN AND GUS ARE TOGETHER ONCE AGAIN. WHEN WE USED TO HAVE THE PETTING ZOO HE WAS ONE OF THE FAVORITES. HE WAS SUCH A PART OF OUR FARM, HE GREW UP WITH OUR CHILDREN. IT WILL NOT BE THE SAME AROUND HERE NOW THAT HE HAS GONE. WHENEVER WE HAD RETURN BUYERS OR FAMILY STOP BY THEY WOULD ASK "IS GUS STILL HERE" AND I WOULD CALL HIM AND HE WOULD ANSWER ME AND COME OUT TO SAY HELLO TO EVERYONE. I AM SURE HE HAS A SPECIAL PLACE OVER THE RAINBOW BRIDGE. WELOVE YOU AND WILL MISS YOU GUS. REST IN PEACE MY OLD FRIEND. THE PICTURE BELOW IS THE LAST PICTURE I HAVE OF GUS, THIS WAS TAKEN FALL(2012). HE WAS ENJOYING THE SUN THAT DAY!

In loving memory of"Bear"My husband was doing a remodel job for some people and she was the last of two puppies that they couldn't find a home for and they were going to shoot her. We brought her home, she was six months old when she came home with us and she passed away at 21 yrs old in 2006. She was my constant companion. I miss her terribly and she can never be replaced. Bear is 19 yrs old in this picture.
