We keep a small herd of goats for home dairy. We use the milk for cheese making, coffee, cooking and many other uses in the kitchen. We also use the milk in our handmade goat milk soap and lotion!
Our does, Sophie and Maggie, are a Nubian Alpine cross. We enjoy the qualities from each of these large milking breeds. Our does are strong milkers and at peak production we get about 4-5L of milk per day from each goat!
Our buck is a registered Nigerian Dwarf. Calm, easy to handle and very affectionate. Great genetics to pass on to the next generation!
We call the kids "Mini Milkers". They are a medium size which results in a manageable goat with higher milk production than a miniature breed. Perfect for small homesteads and hobby farms wanting to do home dairy or keep goats as pets.
We have kids available every Spring!
Goat Milk Soap
Everyday we hand-milk our two does, Sophie and Maggie. With the abundance of milk that they provide we began making soap in 2021. We release small batches of various scents every couple of months.
Goat milk is highly moisturizing and great for your skin. Each bar is made on property and is often decorated with dried flowers grown in our garden.
Ingredients include: goat milk from our small herd along with olive oil, shea butter, coconut oil, lye and essential oils.
Wholesale batches are also available for purchase-email for more information, firstname.lastname@example.org
In 2023 we began making high quality traditional lard soaps from homestead raised pork. See web shop for more details.
Sebastopol geese are a friendly and beautiful breed of goose on the conservation list. They are known for looking like they are wearing a wedding dress due to their long curly white feathers!
We have a small breeding program and sell goslings and hatching eggs from about February to May each year. On occasion, we have adults and pairs available.
We welcomed home our small herd of alpacas July 2023.
Their purpose on the homestead is primarily enjoyment, but their fibre will be put to good use and we welcome photographers to do photoshoots with them.
We will be sending our fibre to the mill Spring 2024 and will have products available later that year.
Photographers can book dates through our shop!

We have always been handy but have really gotten into woodworking over the past few years. We love seeing new and custom designs come to life and try and focus on usable, beautiful pieces. With this in mind we do a lot of cutting boards, coasters and charcuterie platters. In addition to this we enjoy making shelves, tables and a variety of furniture.
We sell hatching eggs Spring through Summer.
We brought in new genetics from all the way out in BC this season to ensure we had an amazing Copper Maran and Crested Cream Legbar rooster to cover our thens!
Our flock of hens consists of the following breeds: crested cream legbar, copper maran, americauna, silver laced wyandotte, welsummer, olive eggers (F1, F2, BC1), and some barnyard mixes with the most beautiful heavy blooms!
