We are excited to announce that Tiny Hill Farm will be hosting two informative “Goat Care Courses” for new and beginning goat farmers. Classes will be on Saturday May 5th 2018 at Tiny Hill Farm in Milton Mills, NH.
We will host a “Goat Beginner Basics” course in the morning from 9am-noon. We’ll cover topics such as picking a breed and breeder, nutrition, housing, equipment, biosecurity, and goat preventative healthcare. We’ll also include a hoof trimming and a milking demonstration. This class is geared for folks who are just starting to get involved in the magical world of goat ownership.
Later that day we will hold a “Goat Breeder Basics” course for beginning or aspiring goat breeders. This course will take place from 1pm-4pm in the afternoon. Some of the topics we will cover will be goat breeding basics, how to read a pedigree, choosing a buck, udder and conformation evaluation, goat pregnancy and birth, kid rearing and management, and milking systems and milk safety. This class is geared for people who are interested or just starting out with goat breeding and goat milk production.
We’ll include a farm tour in both classes, as well as lots of hands on time with our herd of Nigerian dwarf dairy goats. Classes will be held on our farm on Saturday May 5th. “Goat Beginner Basics” is from 9am-noon and “Goat Breeder Basics” will be from 1pm-4pm. Each class is $45 per person, or $80 per person if you chose to take both classes. We’ll take a lunch break from noon-1pm with the folks who are take both morning and afternoon classes. Please contact us for more information or if you would like to sign up for our goat classes. You can reach us by calling or texting (603)817-0081 or emailing tinyhillfarm (at ) gmail.com.
More of a poultry person than a goat person? We’re also planning on hosting a “Poultry Care and Breeding” class this spring. Please contact us if you are interested! Thanks so much for reading!
Today we said farewell to a treasured member of our goat herd. Willow Moon Indian Summer 3*D 3*M AR2017 VVE+87 was our 12 year old foundation doe and herd matriarch. Our herd would not be where we are today without Summer. We are glad she lives on in the generations of her kids born here. Summer’s great great great grandkids will be born this year. If you have a Tiny Hill Farm goat, odds are that Summer is in their pedigree. She was a one of a kind goat and we are so grateful that we had so many wonderful years with her. She’s pictured here with her quints from 2010. Good bye Sum, we’ll miss you!

Happy February! Just wanted to post a quick farm update welcoming two awesome bucks to our herd and giving an update to our kid reservation list.
Tiny Hill Farm Dude of Thrones *B (TinyHillFarm’s Karl Hungus*B X Tiny Hill Farm Sansa 1*M) has come back home and he’s brought his friend Fairlea Mookie Betts *B (Fairlea Edmond Dantes *S *B X Fairlea Irene 6*D 6*M) along with him. A big thank you to our friends at On Golden Farm for entrusting us with these two gentlemen. Looking forward to adding their stellar genetics to our herd! You can see more information about these bucks on our Herd Book and Kidding Schedule page.
We are now running a wait list for doe and doeling reservations. Although we have stopped taking deposits for does and doelings, we are still running a wait list in case we have any additional available females. Not looking for a doeling? Our buckling and wether reservation lists are still open! If you are looking for a fantastic herd sire or just an adorable pet we still have reservations available for you. Contact us for details. New kids are due to start arriving in March! Happy spring!
We are excited to announce that two more of our goats have earned ADGA Superior Genetics awards. Congratulations to SG Tiny Hill Farm Aurum 4*M and SG Tiny Hill Farm Penta 6*M! Penta and Aurum also earned their milk stars this year, both as one year old first fresheners. Here’s a photo of Penta’s rear udder. We think she’s pretty awesome. If you are wondering about their funny names, both does are named after geysers in Yellowstone National Park.
Season’s Greetings from Tiny Hill Farm! Wondering if we offer baby goats for sale as Christmas presents? No way! Giving an animal as a surprise gift is a terrible idea! However, we do have several spots left on our reservation list for spring 2018 kids if you want to give yourself or a friend the gift of a spectacular goat kid or kids this spring!
Pictured here is Tiny Hill Farm Aurum 4*M and one of her doelings from this spring. Aurum was bred this month to MCH Kids Corral LL Smokey Fire via AI. We are excited for this pairing and we can’t wait to meet those kids when they arrive in March. A very limited number of reservations for this breeding are still available.
If you prefer to DIY your baby goats we are still offering driveway breeding services to approved does on a limited basis. Scroll down to read more and feel free to contact us with any questions. Happy holidays!
We have updated our goat Herd Book and Kidding Schedule for the 2017-2018 breeding and kidding season. Take a peek at the page to see an updated list of all of our goats and their accomplishments, plus planned breedings, and kid reservation availability. If you might be interested in adding a Tiny Hill Farm Nigerian dwarf goat into your life, now is the time to contact us with any questions and to get on our kid reservation list. We look forward to hearing from you!
We are very proud to announce that two of our homebred does made ADGA’s August 2017 Elite Doe list. Both are ranked in the 98th percentile. Those two does are sisters, SG TinyHillFarm Super Lois 6*M and Tiny Hill Farm Penta. Lois is a two year old second freshener, and Penta is a yearling first freshener.
