Keeping goats in the city has become popular over the last few years. The desire to connect with food has led to many cities passing laws to allow for food producing animals. In the city of Denver, we are allowed either two Nigerian Dwarf goats or two pygmy goats. Goats do not fair well without a companion, you must have at least two goats in order to have happy, healthy, and quiet goats.
We raise Nigerian Dwarf goats. Our goats are registered with ADGA. We participate in ADGA's Linear Appraisal program and attend a few local shows each year.
The Nigerian Dwarf is a Miniature Dairy Goat. A healthy Nigerian Dwarf doe can produce a surprising amount of sweet milk for their small size – up to two quarts per day. The Nigerian Dwarf goat milk benefit is that it is higher in butterfat (6-10 percent) and higher in protein than milk from most dairy goat breeds.

"Luna"is one of our home bred goats. She has always had a laid back personality, which is perfect for a city goat. Luna and her twin, Dewey, were sold as kids but the buyer backed out and my husband commented that we were meant to keep her; he always loved her blue eyes. At her first show she surprised us and won her age group class (out of 17). In April 2017, she gave birth to twins, Lulu (EJ's Farm Skip to My Lou) and Gus. Luna is an excellent mother and passed her wonderful traits on to her kids.

"Lulu" inherited her mother's looks and her sweet personality. We breed for temperament, confirmation, and milk production. Lulu freshened this year and gave us two doelings, Hopscotch and Peekaboo (aka Nutmeg). They are sired by Udder Charms BamBam.
