Goats

Pygmy goat

We have several breeds of goat on the farm, from small pygmy goats to large milking breeds. As their reputation implies, goats are voracious eaters, but it is extremely important that you do not feed them bread as this swells in their stomachs and can make them very poorly!

British Toggenburg

The Toggenburg is named after the valley in Switzerland where the breed originates from and is thought to be the oldest registered breed of goat. British Toggenburgs are best known for their milk production. Their markings are described as swiss-marked, which means that they have a darker body and lighter legs, ears, and facial stripes. Find out more about British Toggenburgs from the British Toggenburg Society.

Anglo-Nubian Goats

Anglo-Nubian Goats are one of the heaviest and tallest breeds of goat with males weighing up to 140kgs and females to 110kgs. The breed was developed in Britain from excellent milking stock and crossed with goats from the Middle East and North Africa, hence the name! You can easily distinguish our Anglo-Nubians from our other breeds by their long, pendulous ears and distinctive faces which a 'Roman nose' (convex nasal bone). They also stand more upright than our Toggenburgs. Anglo-Nubians are prized for their milk which has an exceptionally high butterfat content. You can find out more about the breed from Anglo Nubian Goat Society.

Pygmy Goats

The pygmy goat is hardy, good natured and genetically small. They are originally from Africa but are mainly kept as pets in the UK.

The Pygmy goat is an asset in a wide variety of settings, and can adapt to virtually all climates. they are a responsive pet, a cooperative provider of milk, and an ecologically effective browser.

Pygmy goats are precocious breeders, bearing one to four young every nine to twelve months after a five month gestation period. Newborn kids will nurse almost immediately, begin eating grain and roughage within a week, and are weaned by three months of age. Find out more about pygmy goats from the Pygmy Goat Club of Great Britain.
