WELCOME TO STONEBRIER FARM
In 2000, we visited our sons who
were serving at Naval Air Station Whidbey and fell in love with this
We decided to buy a long neglected farm and went to work.
The name of the farm, "Stonebrier" was chosen because our name is "Stone"
and the property was one big "brierpatch."
We had Blackberry canes that had
grown up to the roof of the barn and everywhere else.
As Whidbey Island is
known locally as "The Rock," our name "Stone" fit perfectly! We have moved a
few tons of rocks, or at least our backs feel like we did.
We went on a Nubian Goat buying
trip with one of our grandsons for a 4-H project and came home with one of
our own. Of course, she was lonely, so we bought her a Boer doe as a
companion, and that was the beginning of our adventure with goats. We now
have a small herd of registered South African Boer meat goats and Nubian
Our goal with our Boer goats is to
raise the best possible example of the breed that can be used for breeding
stock, show animals or for eating.
All newly purchased animals for our herd
are examined by our Veterinarian and then quarantined for 30 days prior to
introduction into the herd.
The whole herd has been tested for CAE and
C.L. and the results were all negative.
Herd health and bio-security are very
important to us so that we can provide the best animals possible.
We hand raise all of our Nubian kids on
raw milk. Since our herd is disease free, we do not pasteurize.
Our Nubian kids are disbudded, grow well and are friendly.
Occasionally, but not too often, we have a milker for sale.
Buck kids can be reserved, but not from
Most buck kids are wethered unless we see an
exceptional one, out of one of our very best milkers.
We do not
show, and we are not on milk test or Linear appraisal.
The only tests
that we are interested in are the ones that show that we have a healthy
We strive to raise good, friendly,
producing milkers for family use.
We are members of the ADGA and our
Nubians are registered with them.
Our whole herd is guarded by Anatolian
Shepherds. Chance, the female, was purchased from Joyce Ninnemann of "Rollin
Sage Boers" Farm and Moses, the male, from Terry Parker of "Parkers Gourmet
If you would like to take a drive
to Whidbey Island, we would be happy to show you our herd. However, please
call first so that we can be available to answer any of your questions. If
you see any goats that you might want to know more about just give us a call
or write us an e-mail. Many of the kids that you will see on our web site
will be scheduled for sale.
We feel blessed to live in this
wonderful country, "The Land of the Free - Because of the Brave." God Bless
We give praise to God for all of
our bounty as it truly comes from Him as it is written: "You shall have
enough goats milk for your food, For the food of you household, And the
nourishment of your maidservants." Proverbs 28:27
Thank you for visiting our web
