Backyard farming at its best. We're trying to downsize a bit and focus on just Nigerian Dwarfs. Right now we've got our herd name "Sunfire" registered with ADGA and AGS and hope to also join NDGA some day in the future. For now we have 3 solid Nigerian Dwarf does in our herd and a lot of others that come and go. We currently have 2 doe kids, an adult in milk, and a LaMancha (our last doe) up for sale or trade. Check out our For Sale and Nursery pages to find out more.
We're currently located in Lone Pine, CA but will be moving this coming summer! Hopefully to a small place in Inyokern, CA. Stay tuned for more updates!
Currently we're only raising goats and chickens, but hopefully within the next 5 years or so we're hoping to expand to horses, a few other types of poultry, rabbits, and some other critters. But for now, here's a bit about us..
This all started with one goat, a Nubian cross wether, that I bought as a freshman in high school (2010). I discovered that I had a love for goats that I never knew of before. He started off the learning process, and I adopted his half brother a year later. In spring of 2013 I bought my first pure bred Nigerian Dwarf doe, and it all exploded from there. What started off as a small FFA project has turned into a passion that I hope to follow through with in the various stages of my life. Since getting that one doe, I've had 4 main types of goats come and go from our home in Lone Pine. We've varied from Mini's to Large breeds including Nubians, Mini Nubians, Boers, LaManchas, Mix breed fleece goats, Mini LaManchas, and of course the beloved Nigerian Dwarfs. This past year has been my way of testing the waters to see what breeds suit my life style best. I've fallen in love with the varieties of color and personalities found in the Nigerian Dwarf breed, but have also met some amazing goats along the way. In the near future I think I'm going to stick to milk breed goats, but we'll see where the wind takes us and what we end up with. Most of our goats have come through trade or rescue, been rehabilitated when needed, and sent off to new homes. I currently only own two goats that I've had to pay for, (Athena and Magnum), the rest have come here as stated before. I'm hoping we'll be able to expand to a bigger area where housing more goats, rescued or adopted, comfortably. Unfortunately for now we're limited on what we can have as we live smack in the middle of Lone Pine, but thankfully have some pretty tolerant neighbors. Don't let the fact that my goats live in my back yard fool you, I give them the best care that I'm able to. They get the best hay, grain and loose minerals that I can get around here, and we've spent numerous hours and plenty of money improving their pens and way of living. I spend a lot of my free time with my goats, cleaning their pens, socializing them, doing regular health care for them. We've actually started a trend here in town of people living with small livestock (goats, chickens, ducks, etc.) in their yards. That's a bit about us and where we're standing now (March 2014). I'm supposed to be having a hip surgery in mid July, but hopefully after my recovery and PT treatments are over we'll be moving our small herd to a whole new area with much more room and access to more things, people, and places. Please visit our website or Facebook page often, you never know when something might change!
