Located in Schuyler County in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of Central New York, we are a small dairy goat farm dedicated to our roots and maintaining a close bond with our animals.

My husband, Jamie, and I are both originally from the area and both spent a great deal of time on dairy farms in our youth. I also grew up raising and training horses, always with a variety of other farm animals around. In 2001 Jamie and I were married and purchased the current property which had originally belonged to my grandparents, Lewis and Dora Cole (the Cole in our name is in their honor). We both felt a need to keep some sort of livestock on the farm and in the fall of 2006 two Dorset sheep and a guardian llama arrived. In 2007 two more sheep joined the herd, this time Tunis-Cheviot crosses. Jamie had always felt that goats would be fun, however I was reluctant to deal with trying to contain such mischievous creatures. A visit to the State Fair and some prodding by friends changed my mind in 2008 and the search was on for a pair of lovely Nubians. A few contacts resulted in Jazz and Mule, mother and daughter, joining us on the farm. And so began our love affair with goats! Farming is in our blood and fate has led us back into the dairy business.

A little about our philosophy on breeding goats: Each breeding is made to improve upon the last generation, but breeding is our choice. As such, we are responsible for the life of each animal born to our farm (or purchased into our farm). We take their health and safety seriously, which is why we have strict quarantine and disease testing rules in place. This is also why we take great care in making sure that the goats who leave our farm have the best care throughout their lives. We do not object to selling goats for meat, however, the buyer must treat them with respect and appreciation for the gift that they give, and give them the gift of a humane end in return. We made the decision to bring them into this world and we feel that it is our responsibility to ensure they do not experience undue pain or fear in their lives.
