Lots of new and exciting things are happening on the farm this spring! We expect to have our goat kids start arriving soon. This means we will have goat milk available for sale starting in May. We will also have our Nigerian dwarf goat kids available for sale, as well as one or two does in milk. If you are interested in buying our goats please let us know now so we can put you on our waiting list. Our goats are dual registered with ADGA and AGS and tested annually for CAE, CL, TB, brucellosis, and Johne’s disease. We breed for correct conformation, udder quality, and dairy production. This year our goats will be on DHIA milk test, as well as ADGA’s linear appraisal.
Our incubator has been up and running for several weeks now. We have mille fleur d’Uccle chicks available for sale at this time, as well as some adorable pilgrim goslings. We will have sexed juvenile mille fleur d’Uccle, silkie, and New Hampshire bantams available for sale later this season. Our birds did very well at the poultry shows we went to last fall, so we have high hopes for this year’s chicks.
We will also hatch more of our awesome bourbon red turkeys in the next month or so. Our waiting list for them has gotten fairly long, so let us know as soon as possible if you might be interested in poults. We will also start taking reservations for our 2015 organic Thanksgiving turkeys soon. They sell out very quickly every year!
Over the fall Aubrey, our “farm dog”, was able to finish another rally obedience title, and she was also awarded the Golden Retriever Club of America’s Certificate of Conformation Assessment. She is now Adirondac Talk Birdy to Me! RA CA CCA CGC. She also has eight legs towards the ten legs she needs for her coursing advanced title, as well as two legs towards her United Junior Jumper dock diving title. She is a dream dog, both in the show ring as well as at home.
Our biggest news is that our daughter, Clara Jane, was born at home on February 10th. She was 7lbs 12 oz and 21 inches long. She has been such a joy. Clara already she shows great promise of being a wonderful farm kid!
Thanks so much for reading and happy spring!

Things have been very busy here at Tiny Hill Farm, so we apologize for the lack of updates. Our goat kidding season is winding down for the year.

Thank you to everyone for all the pre-orders this year. We are sold out for 2013. If any turkeys become available we will let everyone know.
What’s going on at the farm? It’s goat breeding season right now. We expect to have many new baby goat kids due this spring. The bucks our does have been bred to this year are the very handsome Old Mountain Farm StingN Ned L and Old Mountain Farm Joshua James. We are especially excited to have the chance to use Joshua, because he is the littermate of our best milking doe, Old Mountain Farm Jil Michelle. Joshua was born here, and we were happy to welcome him back for a few short weeks in September. After Joshua left, we’ve had Ned here to breed the rest of our does. As usual, a huge thank you goes to our friends at Old Mountain Farm for entrusting us with these fabulous bucks. If you are interested in spring 2014 kids, please let us know now. We also are winding down our milk sales for the year, in preparation for winter. We expect to be totally sold out of milk by the end of November. We’ll have goat milk available again in April 2014.
Our chickens have been doing very well. We’ve entered a few shows, and we expect to enter one or two more this winter. Our mille fleur d’Uccle hen won Best of Breed at the Boston Poultry Expo last weekend. We currently have a few New Hampshire bantam females for sale. They are about 6 months old, and they should make great layers. They are $20 each. Next year we will have a very limited number of New Hampshire bantam, silkie bantam, and Ameraucana bantam chicks for sale. We will also have a limited number of our Bourbon red turkey poults for sale in the late spring and early summer.

She now has her AKC Rally Novice title, two legs towards her United Junior Jumper dock diving title, and one leg towards her AKC Coursing Aptitude title, all earned at under a year old.
