 We raise Angora goats for spinners' flocks & pets.  Because we no longer show goats we no do not register our goats.  All of our does have been born on the farm.  We buy registered bucks from out of state to increase the gene pool in Maine.  We expect our first kids of the season the end of March and into mid-April.  We will have some doe/kids combinations for sale and ready to go to new homes in May as we gradually reduce our herd.  Kids will be weaned and ready to go to new homes the end of July.


         Any out of state sales require a health certificate, some states require additional testing for the importation of goats.  These additional costs are at the buyer’s expense.

Goats are social animals and need to be with other pen mates. If introducing goats to an existing flock of sheep

or band of goats you must do so with at least 2 at a time.  We only sell single animals under certain circumstances,

i.e. companion for a single animal (sheep, goat, horse), or breeding bucks.   
















Draft Goats

    Our first draft goat was Yin - the first colored kid born on our farm in 1995.  Although we thought he was going to be a breeding buck we discovered he had an undescended testicle.  We couldn't part with him, but he had to have a job to earn his keep - he became the Public Relations goat by being trained to pull a cart at fairs and festivals.

    Since then we have had a variety of goats trained to pull in harness and in yoke.  Currently we have a wether single in harness who is beginning to ground drive.  Hopefully, next summer I will have at least a pair (maybe two) driving a cart. 

    Anyone interested in using goats for draft - especially in Maine and New Hampshire - for fun, work around the farm, or for exhibition is welcome to contact me.  Below is a list of resources I have gathered with links to various sites for more information.
