I grew up with Oberhasli dairy goats and have always liked goats. We decided to start with Nigerian Dwarf goats in 2016. In 2018 we added our first Mini Nubian and fell in love! We now only focus on the Mini Nubians. Our goats are all registered with the MDGA. Their smaller size makes them easy to handle and perfect for family pets. As you can see my children love them. They provide plenty of milk to feed a family. Their small size also means they eat less and require less space. Perfect for any hobby farm or someone interested in providing their own milk supply. They are slightly larger then Nigerians which makes them not so easy to get out of a fence and they produce a little more milk.

Mini Nubian milk tastes so good! Its sweet and doesn't have a goatie taste. Mini Nubians produce on average between a 1/2 gallon to over 1 gallon per day. Its also great for making cheese and goat milk soap.
