Goats

The Bagot Goat:

What’s black and white and rarer than the giant panda? Our goats! The Bagot goat is England’s oldest and rarest goat breed, with only 200-300 breeding females worldwide. The contrasting black and white coat and the impressive oversized horns of the males are striking. Goats make exceptional weed killers and we use our animals to keep our paddocks weed free as part of our multi-species grazing system. The Bagot goat evolved as an extremely hardy, low maintenance parkland species. That and their docile temperament (even the boys) make them perfect for conservation projects. 

Pygmy Goats:

The African pygmy goat is a breed of miniature domestic goat. The pygmy goat is quite a hardy animal, and can adapt to virtually all climates. We keep two pygmys at the farm, Louise and her son, Badger born May 2019.
