Sheep Gate Farm is a suburban hobby farm. Sustainable, organic farming is fun, healthy and rewarding. An important part of Sheep Gate Farm are beautiful, friendly, dairy goats. Choosing the Mini Nubian Dairy Goat as a breed was easy. They are the perfect size for a backyard hobby farm, they have remarkable personalities and abundant rich milk. Dairy goats have lived alongside humankind for centuries. They were the first domesticated animal and for good reason. They are not only intelligent and friendly but also produce delicious and digestible immune boosting milk that can be made into yogurt, cheese, ice cream, soap, lotion and much more. If you want to stay close to your food source the Mini Nubian Dairy Goat is a delightful addition to any hobby farm, suburban backyard or small homestead.
At Sheep Gate Farm, I strive to breed registered Mini Nubians for dairy capacity, docile temperaments, good conformation and small size. They are raised in a natural setting with the ability to forage and graze. They were tested in 2012 and are CAE and Johnnes negative. Kids are dam raised and handled daily. Kids are eating hay and grain and ready to leave for their new homes between 9 and 12 weeks old. They are vaccinated for Tetanus and Enterotoxaemia, dewormed, disbudded and hooves trimmed before they leave. If you are interested in purchasing a Mini Nubian Dairy Goat, kids will be arriving in the Spring of 2015. You can make your reservation now. A refundable deposit of $100 will reserve a kid of your choice. Currently, only buckling reservations available.
