Welcome to Walnut Mtn. Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats, we hope you enjoy your visit.
Our farm is located in NW PA on 10 beautiful acres surrounded by State game lands, this was our dream for retirement.
We are new to Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats but, not new to goats. We have raised Alpines for years, Mom & I have always loved the Nigerian dwarf's but didn't want to have 2 breeds. With Mom's age (shhh, don't tell her I said that, ha ha) and my health issues, it gave us the opportunity to be owned by them. It's so true, they will own you in no time. We have had a blast with them so far and plan to have much more fun in the future.
Our kids are on a CAE prevention program with heat treated colostrum and pasteurized milk. The does are brought into our basement to kid and the kids are immediately removed and put into a playpen.
We bottle feed for the first few feedings, then they are switched to a free choice bucket. This seems to work very well for us with the Alpines so we will see how it goes with the nigies. We always offer free choice grain and an alfalfa grass mix hay.
Our main priority is to breed animals with excellent dairy character and also have milk in the bucket. Honesty is our policy and we are always truthful about our animals good and bad points since none are perfect.
We will not be taking deposits but, will be keeping a waiting list for anyone who is interested in any of our kiddings. All fees incurred for transport, shipping, health certificates, specific tests or innoculations or medical expenses are extra.
We reserve the right to decide not to offer a kid for sale if we choose to retain it for our herd or if it's not up to our standards.
All animals have tested Negative 03/2013 for CAE, CL & Johne's,2014, 2x 2015 & 2016 for CAE.
Prices quoted are for kids up to one month of age at the farm. We can fly United or American Airlines out of Pittsburgh International Airport, Akron/Canton OH or Cleveland OH but, we would love you to come and pick up your new kid and see the rest of the herd if possible.
Thank you for your interest and we would love to hear from you.
