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
Mini-Mancha and Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats.
We raised dairy goats for several 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.
The herd is primarily made up of Mini-Manchas and our
plan for the 2016 kidding season is to have only
Mini-Manchas born. That means our Nigerian Dwarf
does will be bred to Mini-Mancha bucks for minis
too. I will be bringing in some new Nigerian
Dwarf bucks though so we'll have Nigerians born
again in 2017.
We decided to stay in our current home and build the
new farm on our existing three acres. It turned
out to be our best option and we were able to
make some very necessary changes so we are very
happy to stay. The dangerous trees are down, the
new carport is in and the work has really just
begun. We hope to have the new carport barn
enclosed before the coldest part of winter hits.
We still have a lot of fencing to do too so the
herd was kept small with just nine does and five
bucks kept. We still have our lovely Alpaca
Calvin too and I do plan to get another Alpaca
or two for him and for fiber next year. If you
would like to follow the progress on the new
click here or

finished! Take a look around and contact us
with any questions or comments. Thanks for
will begin in just over a month!
