We're proud to be members of the newly formed Dakota Goat Association (DGA). Membership is open to anyone interested in goats for any purpose, including dairy, meat, companion, fiber, fainting, pack animals, etc.
Update - Beginning in May, 2020 we'll be offering milk shares in our goats. Shares are currently the only legal way for you to obtain fresh, raw (unpasteurized) milk in North Dakota. See the "For Sale" page for more information.
We have limited supplies of goat milk soap and lotion available now. They will soon become regular products for us. .
Cherry, who turns 8 years old in January of 2020, has been confirmed pregnant with triplets. We are eagerly anticipating her additions to the herd, as well as our other does.
Harner goats are hand-raised in west central North Dakota with an emphasis on structural soundness, milking ability, health and personality. Our herd began with quality goats from two recognized North Dakota herds: Dream-Sum and Honey Flatts. We've brought in new bloodlines from show and strong milk production herds including Kecskemet in Connecticut, Kasey's Kids in Pennsylvania, Old*Glory in Texas, Pruitville in Louisiana, and Iron-Owl and Hidden Meadows in Oregon with Kastdemur, Foxwood, Lakeshore and Lynnhaven goats just a bit farther back. Kids from our herd will give you fresh genetics. If you enjoy looking at pedigrees, we've got some interesting ones.
We participate in the American Dairy Goat Association's Linear Appraisal program to have a double check on the structure of our animals. All individual scores are listed with those does on their page. We're in the second year of participation in DHIR milk testing, so there's verifiable production records on every doe. I weigh and record each doe's production at every milking. Those barn records are available for serious buyers.
There's plenty more to come on this site, so please check back often.
