A few candid photos of our colored Boer Does are shown below.  Our brood does have earned their place here by being maintained on a forage diet & producing top notch kids that excel in my customer's breeding programs, as well as compete in the show ring!  They are pasture hardy gals that have excellent maternal qualities.

~Farm History~

 In 1998, my husband (Stuart) and I purchased a 50 acre farm in Port Royal, Pennsylvania which bordered the Juniata River. We both had an interest in farming and raising animals. . . . and so the saga begins. Stu began raising registered Black Angus cattle, but sold his herd when upgrades & renovations were needed on the farm. My interest in goats began in 1998, with two brown & white spotted Nubian wethers (aka “Bill” & “Bob”). I became intrigued with their personalities and the endless mischief they got into. Raising goats is a bit addicting. You can’t have just one!

I began researching the Boer breed & purchased my first 100% Boer buck in 1999, along with a few non-registered does. Over the years, I kept a few of the best progeny from each herd sire we purchased. Each generation brought a higher percentage of Boer and better quality of goat. We currently have approximately 30 mature Brood Does, most of which are Purebred from many generations of our own on-farm breeding. We also maintain about 1/3 of our herd as Fullblood Boers.  Approximately 20 doelings a year are retained to use as replacement does in our own herd, and to offer at the sales we participate in.

Over the years, our herd has evolved, as we progressively purchased higher quality Boer bucks to increase the overall Boer breed character (heavy muscling, excellent weight gains, strong roman head & wide hornset, strong legs and pasturns, wide loin & clean teats) into our herd.  We continue to strive for adding these qualities into our spotted, dappled, red, black, paint & of course traditional colored Boers. Our Herd Sires have done their job well......producing kids of exceptional quality in array of eye popping colors!  What an additional bonus!!

2017 has been a year of change for us. A bit of Dejavu as my goat obsession has come full circle.  WE NOW OWN the farm that sold me my first 2 Nubian wethers which started my obsession with goats.  LOL. We are transitioning from life at our "Riverview Farm" to life at our "Ridgeview Farm".  Our Port Royal farm is now for sale & we have moved most of the goats to our new facility in Mifflintown, PA.  Our first major kidding will begin late December, through January of 2018.  We are excited with where this new adventure is taking us.  Stay tuned for an overload of kid photos when our kidding begins!!!

We have been blessed to be consignors in the True Colors Boer Goat Sale & also The Wild and Wonderful Boer Goat Sale in the past.  In 2017, Stu & I hosted the first annual Fall Into Colors Boer Goat Sale...........which was a huge success!!!  We are already planning the 2018 Fall Into Colors Boer Goat Sale to be held on October 13, 2018.

 

Please visit "Our Goat Nutrition" page for information on our feeding programs. "Our Focus" page gives a detailed account of where we are headed in the future.

 

We would be happy to give you a tour of our farm, or answer any questions that you may have regarding purchasing or raising goats.  By utilizing sustainable principals of agriculture, we are able to offer you Boer Goats of exceptional value and genetic composition at competitive prices!
