Our farm started because a neighbor invited me to join her knitting class. It was LOVE at first feel of that silky, soft, shinny, luxurious, yarn she made from her Angora goats fleece, called MOHAIR.
When she showed us her cute, cuddly critters, that cinched it. We had to get some of them! They are small, and gentle enough for anyone to handle. They act like pets, following us everywhere we go.
After learning how to clean, card & spin, we decided to start breeding, and selling Angoras, their fleece and custom-designed handcrafted arts from their mohair. See what a simple knitting class can become !
We hope you enjoy seeing our animals and the items made from their fleece; and of course, hope you will be inclined to make a purchase. Feel free to email us with any questions
In the fall of 2007 we started with 7 does, the farm where we purchased our Angora goats arranged to have our does breed by a black buck.
The Spring of 2008 we had six new baby Angora Goats, three doelings and three bucklings, each carrying color genes. That means they can produce color babies when breed to a color buck. We took three to show at the Goat fest in Goldendale, WA. one took first place and best of breed another took 3rd place.
Since Angora Goats can't be breed until they were either 60 pounds or at least a year old we had our older does breed by a different buck who was white carrying color genes. Which we had planned would then give us more color gene babies, with the fleece curl of the white Angora Goats, since most color Angora Goats don't have as much curl & fineness in their fleece as the white Angora Goats.
Spring of 2009 gave us more color gene Angora Goat kids, sadly though we ended up with only three thanks to some nighborhood dogs. Two doelings and one buckling which we wethered, survived, we promptly obtained a couple of Alpacas to guard our herd and give us another type of fleece.
That fall we were able to have our doelings from 2008 breed by the white buck with color genes.
We started showing the Angora Goats at our local County Fair to promote Angoras in our rural area. We received ribbons and ended up selling two goats from that exposure.
2010 gave us one doeling and three bucklings, at least the doeling was BLACK. We wanted to breed for color to blend with the white fleece, and have natural colored fleece.
