How we raise our goats. Our hand raised, bottle fed babies are either Nigerian Dwarf , Mini-Nubians, Mini-Manchas, or Mini-Alpines. We usually have anywhere from 10 to 30 born on the farm each spring. This year we are having a very small breeding so we will have a few kids starting in June. We frequently post about goings on the farm on our Facebook page, find us at PapaJohnsFarmNC You can also call or text Papa John at 336.624.4500 to find out what is available and make arrangements to come and see them.
Our little kids spend their days romping in the kid pen until they are old enough to be let out with the herd. They are all hand fed and bottle raised and calm and comfortable with people. They play with our grandchildren, and are handled constantly by all of us on the farm.
They are watched over by our Great Pyrenees protector dogs, and often bunk with cats. They become the perfect little backyard farm pet, and learn their names and come when called.
We disbud early to make sure there are no issues with horns or scurs. They get CDT shots and are wormed. By the time they are ready for their forever homes they are healthy and eating grain and hay. Little boys are fixed between the 8th and 10th week, and become very sweet, and the perfect option for those folks who do not want to breed. We do not sell intact males unless they are reserved and paid in full by the time they are 8 weeks of age. Yearly CDT shots are provided as well for any "Papa Johns" registered goat. We will continue to answer questions and provide advice after your purchase. We are not vets, but are happy to share knowledge in the effort to support the new owners.
You may reserve a goat with a $100 deposit in cash, final payment, in cash, is due before the goat leaves the farm. Once you've selected your kids, we do encourage you to visit them often to watch them grow and bond with them, they are normally ready to go to their new homes between 8 and 12 weeks, depending on whether they are eating solid food. All our purebred goats can be registered with either AGS(Nigerian Dwarfs) or MDGA (Mini-Nubians, Mini-Alpines) and we provide you with the forms complete for you to fill in the name you prefer when you register them.
