Welcome to Whimsy Woods Farm! About Us: Our story begins with two people and a dream! What started with a love for animals, and living a self sustainable lifestyle has over the years blossomed into Whimsy Woods Farm. We began raising Nigerian Dwarf goats in 2017. We started with 3 wethers and one little doeling. We quickly fell in love with their loving and inquisitive nature, and basically from that point on we became hooked. The following year we purchased our first registered goats, and the rest is history! Nigerians have AMAZING milk. For their size they are great producers. Their milk has one of the highest fat contents of all dairy breeds, making it great for things like cheese, ice cream, yogurt and soap! Its thick creamy texture makes it delicious as a stand alone product as well.
Our goal is to produce Nigerians that not only are loving and friendly farm family members, but also are conformationally correct, and competitors on the milk stand and show ring. Basically, we are trying to create the "total package" in our goats- high dairy production, a show stopping show goat or just a loving farm companion all wrapped up in one little cute caprine! We test our breeding/show stock annually for CAE and have always tested negative, and our foundation stock has also come from CAE negative herds. We also run tests for Johne's and CL yearly, using random sampling and picking different herd individuals every year and have also always had negative results. We are proud to now be participating in milk test with all of our adult does. We feel that not only is this program a rewarding one to take part in, but it also will help us make better decisions when it comes to our breeding plans. We welcome any questions you may have! Feel free to reach out to us via our Facebook page, or email. Links to both forms of contact can be found at the bottom of the page. We can also provide references upon request! Thank you for taking the time to explore our little homestead!
Hear what others have to say about their experience with Whimsy Woods Farm:
"Brandi was awesome to work with. We have never owned goats before and she always was available to answer our million questions. Even after getting our goats Brandi has stayed in contact and continues to answer all our questions. Her goats are beautiful and healthy. They are very well socialized and super loving. We will definitely be getting more goats from her in the future."- Elyse M.
"I spent months researching goats, finding local breeders and asking a million questions to everyone I met. Brandi went above and beyond to assist me in my preparing for having goats, answering endless questions before and after purchasing, and she frequently checks in to see how we are doing. I am impressed by Brandi's knowledge, her goals to developing wonderful goats, and her people skills are incredible too. We have absolutely loved our girls Tilly and Josie we purchased from Brandi and will definitely be recommending her to others in the future!"- Melanie G
"WWF is a lovely farm. It is cute, well kept and very clean. It is obvious the animals are well cared for and loved. Brandi is knowledgeable, kind and always patient with questions. You can tell they not only care about the quality of their animals, but also their quality of life." - Jenn E.
"The farm is run by caring loving people who put their animals first. Brandi is so knowledgeable and helpful and gives advice freely. Her helpful attitude shows her love of what she does."- Lynn B
"My husband and I adopted two females from WWF, having never owned goats before. I had a million questions. The owners took their time to answer all my questions about care, needs, etc. And I know I can still contact them with any additional questions in the future. Brandi has been so great about responding to my million questions and messages. I want to make sure we are good parents to our new babies, and with Brandi’s help I know we are well-prepared. I can’t say enough great things about WWF!!!" -Steven P.
"My Mom and I went over to visit Whimsy Woods today (7/13/19), and we had a wonderful time! Brandi and her family love all of their animals very much and work very hard to take the best care of them that they possibly can and ensure they give them a great place to thrive! We got to meet all of their goats at the farm and interact with them and see how they are cared for and learned lots about each one! My family and I also raise goats, so it was really great to share our common love of goats and farm animals in general today! I definitely recommend anyone who may be looking to purchase Nigerian Dwarf goats in the future to check out Whimsy Woods! They are very knowledgeable to learn about all of the bloodlines and pedigrees that their goats come from and want to be sure they are breeding healthy and sound kids for their herd and any potential buyers who would want to buy from them!" - Kendra M.
