Welcome to Caelum
Parvum Farm! We are located in beautiful southeast Alabama, just outside of
Dothan. We live on a 50 acre farm, along with
dairy goats, horses, cattle, and poultry.
raising goats in 2006, starting with Angora and
Cashmere fiber goats. We added LaManchas in 2009 as
family milkers. In 2013, we transitioned out of the
fiber goats as our dairy herd grew. We chose this
short-eared breed for their sweet
steady milk production, and the high butterfat
content of their milk.
LaManchas were purchased from Blueberry Field and
Cayds Castle. We acquired four milking does and one
buck from these two farms.
These goats were
the foundation of our current herd, and their
influence is still very prevalent in our herd to
this day. In 2014, we began the process of improving
our herd by bringing in new lines, and chose to
focus on more correct goats in conformation. In
2015, we participated in our first goat
shows, and obtained an initial Linear
Appraisal. We plan to participate in DHIR in 2016.
We have also added genetics from several herds
located throughout the United States, including
Raintree, Barnowl, and Noble-Oaks, in order to
enhance structural correctness and milk production
in our goats.
Since our herd is small, we intend to keep only a
few select goats. Kids will be for sale each
spring. An occasional mature doe and/or buck may also
become available for purchase from time to time.
Discounts will be available for FFA and 4-H.
continually striving to improve our herd by working
towards breeding top quality goats that will both
show and appraise well, in addition to having
excellent milk production for many years to come.
Thank you for
visiting our website. Due to circumstances in
life, many changes are underway. We will be updating
our website completely this fall or early next year.
We will post little updates as time permits. Showing
will remain limited this year. We hope to be more
active in the future.
One big change
that we wanted to advise you of is our Facebook and
Instagram policy changes. As many of you know, we
are no longer on Facebook. Facebook has linked our
phones and computers to my husband's office
computers. He, his partner, and our family do not
believe it is okay for goat ads and goat products to
pop up on computers with patient files. Therefore,
we had to eliminate Facebook. We will not engage in
other similar social networks either. Please feel
free to email, or use the old fashioned approach and
call on the phone.
We look forward
to hearing from old friends and new. Hope to see you
at the shows in the future.
