I am happy to be apart of this wonderful site!
I have been lurking in the shadows reading threads and such. It is nice to be able to tap into such a site as this and enjoy all the experiences and be able to share a few of mine as well.

We have a small hobby farm in Florida where we breed and raise Nigerian Goats. We have 16 wonderful goats whom are spoiled I am proud to say.
All tame and pretty much are fence friendly! Even our Buck. I will post tons of pics here shortly.

Also we breed and raise Swine. Full Berkshires, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Duroc and X's of course.

We a having major trouble with rain and flooding the last couple of months. It is always breeding season with our pigs, so this Summer has been challenging and heartbreaking. Mother Nature sure is keeping us busy.

We also breed and raise Turkeys and Chickens. We have at any giving time approximately 100 to 150 chickens keeping me on my toes.

We sell eggs, chickens, turkeys and pigs as a supplemental income and not getting rich quick, but the bills get paid!


Here is a photo of my baby girl.. My Duroc Sow.. She is a sweetie!

I love the pictures of your animals! At one time we had two Red Wattle pigs. We rotationally grazed them all over our land and they tasted mighty good come butcher time. :drool

Welcome from NW Mississippi!!....:frow
We have goats, chickens, ducks, and cats here on our 20acres....tho, nowhere near the numbers you report. We are getting started with what we have now....3 goats...11 GLW chickens....12 ducks (7 KC, 5 Rouens).....and 3 cats, 2 outside and 1 inside. Your animals sure look good...and man that is a "Sizeable" sow there. There are many here that are really knowledgeable on all those....and are really kind and helpful with most any situation that may arise. So, just browse around and make yourself at home....if ya have a question, comment, or advice just post away. We used to live south of ya outside Groveland and Okahumpka area....and was in the hospital in Palatka with my 1st heart attack....we moved up here in '06, so it's been awhile. We still have a daughter down that way in Minneola....outside of Clermont.
Again.....:welcome

I drove a truck for a company that mixed and delivered soils to nurseries all over Florida, so I have been thru there many times....used to go all the way up to Perry to pickup materials to take back to the yard after delivering and also around Ocala.....nice area up that way.
