About our Farm
This page will give you some background information on how we got started raising emus and our transistion into goats. While Mike & I were both raised on farms, we never dreamed we'd be raising "alternative livestock" at this point. While at times the work is almost overwhelming, I don't think either of us would trade it for anything.
Our Farm's Story
The boys and I began showing dairy goats in 2001. Thanks to lots of helpful, friendly breeders, we have begun to develop animals we feel are not only show quality, but are beginning to increase our milk production. We have a long way to go, but we are greatly enjoying the process along the way.
Take a look around. We'll be adding more goat photos and info soon. Our dairy does will start kidding in mid-February and go until late April or early May. Since we are limited on space, we sell a majority of our babies and often have older does available as well. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about any of our animals.While we have decreased the size of our emu operation, we are still active in raising these unique animals. We currently raise a small number of hatchlings each year for meat purposes, and if you are interested in obtaining some of this wonderful meat, we have some available seasonally. We also carry a line of emu oil products manufactured by Longview Farms in Pennsylvania. For more information on the emu oil products or emu meat, please contact us. We'll be glad to send you a product list with ordering information.
Because of the distinct green color of the emu eggs, the eggs we don't hatch serve a purpose as well. Mike has spent a number of years carving the eggs with pretty much any kind of design imaginable. If you are interested in knowing more about his work, please contact us.
Due to our work schedules, often the best way to reach us is by email. I do my best to answer emails daily, but if we're busy with kidding or shows, it may take a day or two.
Our farm is located in eastern Decatur County in the southeast area of Indiana. Our farm, while being somewhat secluded, is only 2 miles from Interstate 74 and 1 1/2 miles from State Road 46.
