LaMancha Goats

LaMancha dairy goats are a breed that is thought to have descended from Spanish goats brought by early settlers to California.

The LaMancha dairy goat is born with unique small ears that are the distinguishing feature of this breed. LaManchas have excellent dairy temperament.  The LaMancha is a dependable dairy goat, producing quality milk with high butterfat and protein over a long period of time. 

The LaMancha also has a very positive disposition. They are inquisitive and loveable, easygoing and cooperative.

Kunekune Pigs

Kunekune (pronounced “cooney cooney”) - Kunekune means “fat and round” in the Maori language. These tasseled, sweet-tempered, medium-sized pigs hail from New Zealand.   One characteristic of Kunekunes are the distinct wattles under their jowls.  They are two pieces of flesh under the jowl of the pig, similar to goats. Some breeders call them tassels.    Kunekunes are affectionate, friendly, and docile pigs. They will flop over for a belly rub at just a simple touch. They get along well with other animals and other animals seem to accept them easily.  Even intact boars are safe to be around and farrowing sows easily tolerate people being with their new born piglets.  Kunekunes are good grazers and do not do much rooting at all.


We raise three different breeds of ducks on the farm.  Magpie ducks are listed as critically endangered by The Livestock Conservatory.  Magpies are black and white and are a good laying duck.  Swedish blue ducks are grey and white and are also a good layer.  We also have Khaki Campbell ducks which are brown and white and are very good layers.  All of these ducks are good foragers, free range well, know how to get in their coup at night and lay a good amount of eggs.
