Yellow Rose Farm

est. 1997....Quality Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats in Shady Dale, GA

About Us

We are a small family run farm in North Central Piedmont region of Georgia. Yellow Rose Farm started raising Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats in 1997 in Grandview Texas. In 2003, we moved back to our home state of Georgia with our herd. My mother, Kay James, was the backbone of the business until her passing in 2011. After working for years off the farm, in 2013 I was given the opportunity to stay on the farm(Thank you honey!). As you can imagine, running a herd of anywhere from 50-60 goats is a busy life, then throw in the soap and body care business and well.....let's just say that I stay very busy!!

We strive to produce show quality goats with "milkability". This is very important to us and we cull heavily for any problem conformation defaults in junior does. When the goat freshens, we then evaluate the milkability of the goat. This includes structure of the mammary, the texture, and how well the udder milks. If she is deemed quality, in my opinion, then that doe will remain in the herd, otherwise that doe will be sold, usually without papers for a home milker. This means that NO registration papers will be given.

Our main goal at Yellow Rose Farm is to improve the Nigerian Dwarf breed. For us to accomplish this we must make some tough cuts to the herd, this includes some older does that we have improved upon. These does still perform well in the show ring and with milking, so these does CAN be offered with papers. If you are interested in one of these does, I am very upfront about the does shortcomings and will be more than happy to explain why I am selling her.

We love visitors at Yellow Rose Farm! If you would like to visit, please either email or call us and set it up! There are a few rules that you will need to follow for a visit:

1. NO outside dogs/pets. This is a working farm and we have dogs that work to protect our goats from dogs and other predators. They become very upset when an unfamiliar dog comes onto the property. PLEASE leave your pet at home!

2. Children are welcome as long as they are supervised and act appropriately..i.e.no climbing on the fences, running, chasing. This also upsets the dogs, goats, chickens, and well ME!

3. When you come. Please call when you get to the gate. I have a personal protection dog that is threatening, especially when it is someone she does not know.

 

Enjoy looking at the goats! Please let me know if you have any questions or need any further information!

 

We hold Goats 101 classes periodically on the farm along with Soap and Cheese classes. If you are interested please give us a call.
