Lil' Hill Farm!
raising registered pureblood Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats in 2004, when we read an article
in Hobby Farms magazine featuring these little caprines. We
had 20 acres to work with and all we needed was some way to use it and have
fun doing so. Many years ago, I raised and showed Quarter Horses, but
since I've gotten older, I was looking primarily for animals smaller in
stature and ones that could be easily handled by myself if need be. The
Nigerian Dwarf goats just fit the bill. It has been a wonderful journey ever since. We have brought in bucks and does from
all across the country to get the genetics, conformation and milk production
we were looking for. We are concentrating on show quality animals with
excellent conformation and super dairy udders, and we are extremely happy with the results.
We are so grateful to the breeders we purchased these animals from for
entrusting them to our care!
2015 was a very good year for our
farm and the hard work paid off when
three of our girls and one of our bucks were awarded the ADGA
designation!! We are so proud

All of our goats are registered/registerable primarily with the
American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA) and some with the American Goat
Society (AGS) and the
Nigerian Dairy Goat Association (NDGA). Because ADGA is the largest
dairy goat registry and has so many performance programs available, we no
longer register with AGS and NDGA.
So, come on in and meet our herd. These are the darlings that
make our herd strong.
But be forewarned! It doesn't take long
for these little
steal your heart!
Thanks for visiting!
The Goat Herder's Prayer
This night, the feedin' all now done, I bow my head in
And Thank you, God, with my whole heart, for always
I remember this morning, as the sun first broke, when I
called in the herd,
How precious it was to hear YOUR voice ... like my goats
listening for MY word.
They ran from scattered all about, excited just to see me,
Me standing there beside the barn with buckets of feed.
I know they place their trust in me, to meet their needs and
This 'ol barn would be an empty shell were I not waiting for
Ain't that how it is with us, God? Like between them
goats and me?
Life's journey would be so empty, IF YOU weren't there with
So I thank You, Lord, for every goat that you've placed in
And for every lesson that I've learned in this journey that
For the miracle of life ... and ... of sacrifice that some
are called to serve
For we are all your creatures ... together here,
And You ... The Master Shepherd.
