Sweet Gum Minis. We (Ashley, Steve, Hannah and
Matthew) are the Capps family and we live on a
small farm in the northwest part or foothills of South Carolina.
Our herd is rapidly growing! We raise
Nigerian Dwarf and Mini-Mancha dairy goats.
We raised dairy goats for seven years with
Nigerian Dwarf, Mini-Manchas and LaManchas
2005 to 2012 then sold out and decided in the
fall of 2013 to get back in goats. I've strove
to buy back goats I bred and have several in the
herd as well as descendants of others.
I planned to bring in mainly Mini-Manchas and wound up
bringing in more Nigerian Dwarfs so the herd has
been about half and half of the two breeds. We
are on a fence right now on whether we will stay
here or move. There are several variables that
are up in the air at this time, so we don't know
which way it'll go. If we stay we have some
problem trees that HAVE to be removed before we
can expand the pastures and move the goats back
to the old doe barn. Our original plan was to
bring in a new barn and use the old doe barn for
hay storage. The problem trees could easily take
out the barn so the goats are housed up top in
what was originally meant to be a dairy barn for
milking and processing only. So the herd has to
be kept a lot smaller than it use to. If we move
we will likely have to put up fencing and build
barns so again that means a smaller herd. So we
will occasionally have animals for sale. Check
back often. Take a look around and contact us
with any questions or comments. Thanks for
Welcome to Sweet Gum Minis!
