Welcome to 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 breeds from 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 looking!
