Why La Manchas?
La Manchas are the ONLY ADGA recognized breed of goat that is an AMERICAN breed! A medium sized goat, they hold their own, with does ranging from 120 to 150 pounds and bucks 180-200 pounds La Manchas have an open registry right now and any doe 87.5 % or higher, can be registered as an American La Mancha (provided both parents have paperwork that can be traced back with ADGA). The endearing physical feature, is their apparent lack of ears. Though this is NORMAL, (and no, they are not cropped), this throws some people off.
La Manchas milk well, often giving on average 1 to 1 1/2 gallons per day of creamy, tasty milk. Their docile temperaments lend them to being wonderful family milkers, for even children can handle them with ease.
Reserving a kid: A $100.00 deposit is required on all kids. This deposit is non-refundable, unless we cannot meet your request. All kids are bottled exclusively OR bottle/dam combo-raised so they grow FAST but also remain friendly. All kids are to be picked up by 4 weeks of age. Any kid remaining after this, will be charged a $5.00 a day boarding fee (unless prior arrangements have been made.
We will provide buck service for other goats provided they are in good health and free of any visible disease (lumps, hoof rot, etc) at time of breeding. Price is $50.00 per doe. We CAN board 1-2 does and boarding fee is an additional $25.00/week per doe, in addition to the service fee above.

ELLA is a sweet, sweet girl. She is unusual in that she is a "roan", yet a purebred La Mancha. She boasts amazing milk production on both sides as well as champion wins in ADGA shows. At only 4 weeks of age, Ella took Grand Champion La Mancha junior doe at an ADGA open show in the summer of 2014. Unfortunately, her tatoo was unreadable (we figured she would not win!!), so her dry leg win was not recorded. Her dam, Qadosh Adamah is a finished champion as of 2017.
She is smaller than her potential as she had a bad case of pneumonia when younger :( But she stays because of all her amazing qualities! Ella just gets better and better as she ages.

Aurora is a beautiful doe out of Ella and Act and she is pictured above as a 6 month old. She will be a FF yearling this year, 2018. She palced 1st in her class last spring (2017) at an ADGA show in Burton. We will show her again in July 2018.
Zion is a 2yr old and she has a beautiful udder: high, wide and tightly attached.
She is a third generation offspring on our farm and we are excited to see her mature into her second year and beyond.
Above is her first freshening udder- stunning!
