Shameless Sales Blog

It's that time of year! The goats at Swede Farm are popping out babies and as you can see from the pictures they are already taking over! While we LOVE babies, the reality is that this is a working dairy and there are only so many that we can keep and this year we have decided to keep even less than in years past. When the baby goats become couch potatoes and hang out in the hallway it is time that they move along down the road.

What does this mean?

This means that those people who want a cute cuddly baby who will grow up to give them lots of fresh creamy milk have their chance--but the chance won't last forever, even kidding season comes to an end sooner rather than later.

What we are offering are doelings (baby girls) that are between 1-2 weeks of age. These goats are still drinking bottles which will help in make sure that they are sweet and tame. Some of these babies will be American Dairy Goat Association registered purebred LaManchas from our new senior herd sire, and some are crosses between several different breeds of dairy goats, mostly Alpine and LaMancha, from some of our best producers. They are not purebreds but most will come with the papers necessary to register them with the American Dairy Goat Association. This will allow you to show them in shows as "Recorded Grades". You will also receive our information packet walking you through the process of raising dairy goats from cute cuddle babies to professional working girls.

These girls are for sale for $100. We believe that goats need goatie companionship (and odd Uncle Ernie doesn't count) so if you buy more than one we will reduce the price to $75 each.

We also have for sale some does that were exposed to the buck and should have babies within the next month or two as well as a few goats that are already in milk. Price for the bred girls and milkers range from $200 for unregistered bred does to $400 for purebred does in milk. The only thing wrong with these girls is that we have a limited number of milk goats that we can keep and each year need to part with some of them. The $25 discount applies to these girls as well as to the babies.
