Family Farming, And Perfect Products
Our family has been farming for generations, with a vast range of experience, with livestock and crops. In 2017, as a new enterprise we bought our first goats, 14 female kids, All aged 4 months old. We rear all of our nanny kids until they are at a mature age and developed fully, then we put them with the billy, at the most ethical time to be mated with a billy. This is at 1 and half year old, to aim to kid (lambing) at 2 years old. Much later than intensive farming practices. We grew the herd from this buying more goats in from the same breeder, as well as some Pedigree Goats from Devon. As well as our first breeding Billy, Brian. We currently have 40 Breeding nannies, with the hope that next year to be 60 breeding nannies. Most of the female kids born are raised to be in the breeding herd, whilst others and males are reared for meat sales, Sold to A&K Lee Family Butchers, In Tadcaster.
We believe that all animals should be treat in a high welfare environment, this means care for every animal in a high manor. We are different to other goat herds in which our goats Graze outside on suitable days when the weather is warm enough, Goats don't like the cold and rain therefore they prefer to stay in if the weather is cold and raining. Compared to other herds where goats are inside all year round.
