Crescent Ranch is a family-run farm sitting on 2.5 acres in beautiful Northern California. We started with just a handful of chickens and you know what they say about chickens... they're the gateway drug to farming. We graduated to our first pair of nigerian dwarf goats in April of 2019 and our herd has been growing ever since.
When we first started this wild adventure, we had just intended to pick up a few goats as pets. This little farm of ours has turned into so much more! While we are happy to help you find your perfect pasture pets, we are also aiming to raise show quality nigerian dwarf goats. We aim to combine production with conformation and create beautiful, functional animals that will do your (and our) farms justice. We have big dreams here and are getting closer to fufilling those dreams every season. Last year we started on DHI - "milk testing" and have learned so much about our girls lactations and their level of production. This year (2021) we signed up for appraisal and got many of our girls their very first scores! We are also participating in any shows we can make work! SOOO exciting! 😄
In January of 2020, we decided to add to the fun here at the farm and added two AKPR (now IKHR) registered KuneKune gilts! Going from goat farmers to goat AND pig farmers was a task in and of itself, but here we are six litters later and thriving! It has been a learning process to say the least- delegating which animals (goat AND pig) get registered and which get to be homestead animals but we have loved (and sometimes not loved) every minute of it.
When you buy from us here at Crescent Ranch, whether it's a pig or a goat or even chickens, we vow to share all of our knowledge with you to help you be as successful as possible. We vow to provide you with guidance whether it is your first time giving shots, you need help reading a pedigree, need help getting started on milk test, or even a recommendation for another farm when we don't have what you are looking for. We promise to always be 100% authentic in all that we do and to do our best in providing you with the support you need so that you may be successful in your farming adventures.
If you'd like to schedule a visit to come on down and see the farm for yourself or if you'd like come make some soap with us or even if you just want to chat, send us a message and we will be happy to help.
Until then, happy farming!
