We strongly believe that form follows function, breeding for a functional dairy goat that earns her keep in the milk pail and is conformationally correct. To maintain a year-round supply of milk we try to breed and freshen our does over a long season. Our kidding season begins in early winter and extends as late into the summer or fall as the goats will permit.

Starting with Goodwood and Stonewall lines, we have been developing our herd since 1993. We have used a line breeding program to produce consistency in type, and our own unique style. Our does are the foundation for this, each one is special and brings something slightly different into our breeding program, yet all remain within the same dairy, correct style that we breed for.

ARMCH Tom Thumb was the first cornerstone of the herd. All our Rosasharn stock trace back to him. We are pleased to say that Tiger has proven to be the second cornerstone, and our young bucks also seem to be following in their hoof prints, leaving their positive influence on our herd. For a doe to remain in our herd she has not only to succeed in the show ring, she has to produce well on DHI, the milk pail, too. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, just contact us.

Since our beginnings, we have been blessed with many great goats. They are the best “spokesgoats,” we could ask for.
