Stuart has been farming arable crops here since 1978,when he was given the tenancy. But Penny has recently ventured into breeding and rearing Boer goats for meat.
Dairy x Boer Doe kids were bought in November 2013.
Followed in July 2014 by Son of William, a Boer buck, and introduced him to the girls. He is the handsome chappie with horns
Spring 2015 saw the first kids born, a very exciting time!
The goats are kept free range in that they are kept on our grass paddocks with access to shelter at all times, given additional feed of hay and grain based farmyard mix during the winter months.
Fed and nurtured on their mother’s milk, allowing them to grow and develop in their family and social groups exhibiting natural behaviour in a happy and healthy environment.
This is “Dad” Son of William, doing a bit of kid minding, playing on the log pile with the little ones, while Mums take a break.
