Available to good homes, a few Echo Valley Farm animals for sale
On our farm, we raise miniature dairy goats for our own dairy needs, cheesemaking and as well-paid lawn mowers and brush clearers. We have little Nigerians dwarfs, miniature Nubians, and tiny Guernseys. These are ideal, small, dairy producing breeds for homestead dairy production. Frequently we have wethers and doelings and occasionally bred and unbred does available to good homes.
Important to note, we test our goats and (thankfully) our herd is free of CAE, CL, Q fever, Johnes, and Brucelllosis. Our mini Nigerians and mini Nubies are registerable, our sweet little guernsey mixes though are not. We band castrate our bucklings into wethers but not until 4 months as this is better for the little dudes as they grow (less urinary difficulties.)
Please know also, we prefer to only sell our animals in pairs or to homes with goats in residence already, as these little farm friends are herd animals and we respect their need for companionship. Also important to note, to date we do not separate our babies from their mothers. We may do this at some point, there are some very good arguments for doing so, (the little munchkins get all over the feed, they are milk pigs and want our share...) but for now, we let our bucklings stay with momma until they are 2 months old and we don't separate the little doelings until they are sold or until mom tells them to "buzz off" on her own.
And one more detail to share-- our little ones do not have horns. Horns are cool, but we've chosen to go for a horn-free herd. Our vet dehorns our newborns with a mild sedative in the first few weeks so all our goats are sans horns. We encourage folks who have goats already to only add ours if their goats are also free of horns-- makes for a more fair competetion in the head butting championships.

Goats for sale
$400, A little goat family, Thelma, daughter and wether son
We are offering for sale a very sweet doe, Thelma, with her pretty daughter and wether son. The two little ones are a year now, born 1st of May, 2017. The mother is roughly 4 years old. We purchased her from a commercial dairy 2 years ago. She is not registered.
This is a terrific milk goat. She gives a generous amount of milk and is an easy milker. She's been the queen of our herd and is a very sweet, gentle goat and quite people-friendly goat.
