Welcome to The Rancho. We live on small farm with a whole lot of fun in Western North Carolina. We have dogs, chickens and goats. And who knows what else is in the works!
We are so excited this year to continue expanding the pasture and possibly add a horse or two! Kidding season has arrived! The first sets are already on the ground - dancing and prancing away.
Ranchocabra breeding season aproaches!
All but one doe is bred! That makes 12 to kid in the spring. We are debating on holding Stormy over until next year and showing her as a dry yearling in the summer. Hmm. what to do, what to do . . . .
One puppy left!
We have one male puppy left from the litter born in June. His name is Copper. He is a smart, creative puppy with a strong desire to please. If you are interested in hearing more about this puppy, please contact us.
The dog side of the Rancho is called Ranchodutchie. The Dutch Shepherd is a rare breed and we are blessed to have two Rough Coated Dutchies as part of our family.
The dairy goat side of the Rancho is called Ranchocabra. We raise Oberhasli, Alpine and Nigerian Dwarfs. We are learning fun and tasty ways to use the goat's milk including ice cream, cheeses and caramel. What fun!
