Lynne with her goats

Selectively breeding quality registered Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats since 1997. 

Celebrating 20 years of life with goats!!!

We raise our Nigerian Dwarf goats for excellence in dairy quality, conformation and temperament.

Why choose Grasse Acres?

-We are a Wisconsin state licensed mini-caprine dairy farm! What this means for you is when you purchase your kids for dairy stock, they come from milkers who have been selectively breed to produce milk.

-We are now on  DHIR milk test so you are given proof of the performance of each doe in the milk pail.  Since we are determined to stay small in numbers, only does who are considered good milkers are retained. 

-CAE and Johnes free! No CL abscesses have ever existed in our herd. Whole herd testing done annually.
 *2016 whole herd testing for CAE and Johnes are all negative 
* 2015 whole herd testing for CAE and Johnes are negative
Testing done for CL, TB and Brucellosis all negative

-Rotational pasture raised with grass mix/alfalfa hay supplemented
Farm grown quality hay,  farm raised blended grain concentrate and vitamin supplements (including free choice kelp, selenium, and loose minerals) Our goats are fed organically grown grains (most of which we grow ourselves).

-ADGA herd appraisals done (scores available through ADGA)
-Mentoring offered to new goat owners.  It is important that all customers are happy with their new kids and that they receive the best of care after leaving our farm.

Our mission is to provide an environment and breeding program to produce top quality Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats.

2017 marks our 20th anniversary as Grasse Acres! Our little goats continue to bring us heartfelt joy as well as an abundance of sweet goat milk!

Also, new is an article on the “More About Goats” page on my website entitled, “Month By Month On Grasse Acres Farm”  It was written as a FAQ because so many new goat breeders wanted to know about preparing for breeding, kidding and milking.  I hope it is helpful and informative and please contact me with any questions you may have regarding  the contents.  I could write a whole book on this so please feel free to ask questions to clarify any info you read.  

 A special endorsement to my goat buddy, Pam Murphy who has been sharing my website for the past 6 years and is now developing her own website under the herd name, Cedar Gate Farm. I will be sharing her new website as soon as it’s complete.  I feel so fortunate to have someone so close to me to share this crazy goat passion with in good times and bad.  I highly recommend Pam as a responsible breeder of quality Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats.

ADGA Linear Appraisal was completed on July 30, 2015.  We are very proud of our goats and were very happy with the knowledge and professionalism of our appraiser. We especially appreciated the time she spent with us giving feedback and answering questions! See the More About Goats page on this website to see information regarding understanding linear appraisal scores. We had to skip 2016 due to my son’s wedding being at the same time…priorities:)
