Summer 2012 - Our goats are "summering" up in the kudzu field again. Be sure to check out this year's photo of the car they uncovered last summer (see Photo Gallery page). So far the drought hasn't affected the kudzu growth too much, so there is still plenty for them to eat. The cornfields will soon be ready for harvesting. When the harvest is over we will graze the girls on the leftovers. They anxiously wait at the gate every evening to be turned loose to graze the fields. At dusk they come back with their tummies full, ready for a night's rest...

October 2011 - 4th Annual Cream of the Crop Sale. WOW!! What a sale!! This was the best Kiko goat sale in the country this year. This event just keeps getting better & better. The free educational seminars are always informative & helpful. David was part of the Breeders Panel Session. It was great to renew friendships and make new ones over the weekend. We would like to thank everyone who purchased our goats at the sale. We still have a few goats left on the farm, so if you didn't get yours at the sale give us a call.

October 2010 - We participated in the Cream of the Crop Sale in Corydon, Indiana. We sold 5 of our best doelings born this year, including 2 100% New Zealand doelings. We had a great time in Corydon, meeting new friends and seeing old friends. The seminars were informative and the quality of goats auctioned was outstanding.
October 2010 - The bucks are back from the Oklahoma Meat Goat Forage Performance Buck Test. We are PROUD to announce that Z62 was the 1ST PLACE WINNER with an average daily gain of .38lbs.
