Miniature Nubian Goats, Turkeys, Chickens, & Eggs
We had a crazy transition from 2016 to 2017 when six of our does kidded over a five day stretch ending January 2nd. The ladies presented us with a total of 13 kids (2 sets of triplets, 3 sets of twins, and a singleton). Two weeks later Sara, our one Saanen doe, delivered a beautiful set of butterscotch colored Mini "Snubian" twins to finish up our main kidding season. This was followed by an equally busy flurry of activity during which all kids, within two weeks. One buyer was a no show without giving a reason, so we have one solid black blue eyed buckling still available. Thanks to all who showed interest and please see Breeding Plan page for additional pairings and kids due this Summer.
Now class, while I'm gone Junior here is in charge.

Everyone starting out needs a Goat Mentor and we'd love to be yours. Raising goats is a joy despite being a lot of work, and sharing our ten years of experience with beginners, either during the course of making a sale or through hands on tutoring sessions has been one of the most rewarding parts of our experience.
This website is currently a work in progress, so thank you for visiting and please return in the near future to view our additions and updates.
Treestar Farm is a small (20 acre) family farm started in 2012. We came to Wake Forest with the hope and dream of building a dairy goat business upon a lifelong love of gardening and five years of experience raising meat goats at another, much larger site. We chose Miniature Nubians because of their ideal size for owners of family homesteads, our intended customers. Miniature Nubians are the result of a cross between a standard Nubian dam (mother) and a Nigerian Dwarf sire (father). Their ideal status is twofold: first, the amount of milk produced is adequate to provide for a family's milk, butter, cheese, yogurt, and soap needs without being overwhelming; second, these goats are small enough for one person to handle while performing most tasks involved in their care. This results in flexibility related to keeping small livestock on a homestead and makes having a dairy animal an option for those who cannot or do not wish to deal with a standard size goat or a cow.
Our Miniature Nubian goats and kids are priced according to sex, age, generation (how many breedings removed from the original cross), and milking status. We offer quality animals at reasonable prices and are completely transparent regarding disease testing, personality, temperament, and milking records of the animals we offer for sale.
