Good Morning,

my family and I started working on having a farmette last summer. I’m a member of BYC but just now discovered BYH! Super excited to join you all. We currently live in Orange County VA on 4 acres. We have 2 dogs, 3 cats, 7 fish, 6 nubian goats and 16 chickens. I’m hoping to become NPIP certified for my chickens this year and will be breeding BLRW and GLW and hopefully selling eggs as well. I plan on starting my breeding program for my goats in the fall. We’re new to all of this so I’m definitely learning as I go and looking forward to your all’s friendship, help and suppprt!

Welcome from another Virginian! I'm probably 3 hrs from you, close to NC line. Va Beach is close.

I love your Nubians! Here, I have Saanen & Nubian.

You'll love this site --we're a pretty friendly & helpful group.

Hi Mini! Thanks for the welcome! My husband and kids have all fallen in love with our goats. The kids will run around with our wethers and died and they all just bounce around and chase after the kids! It’s so fun to watch! I’m considering adding 2 more does this year so that I’ll have 4 to breed in the fall. I have 2 bucks of different lineage and then my current doelings are twins. I really love my bucks so I figure if I add 2 more does it’ll allow me to keep my bucks as Sires for longer as I’ll have more options for breedings. 😁

Virginia is for Pasture Farmers!
Hello!!! I’m in Unionville so not terribly Farm from Culpeper and I’m there quite regularly :)

my 2 doelings I purchased fro Culpeper. What types of animals do you have?
Nosey ponies, adorable sheep & snooty alpacas. :D =D
Then some pet dogs, cats, cavies & koi.
There's some leftover aquarium fish from the sellout, too, but it looks like they'll never sell. So, ehh, 40+ baby guppies and a handful of adults in a giant 125g.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek!!! I :love ponies and horses! I’ve tried to convince my husband for years to let me get a horse and he says no, they’re just expensive cows:th
I married into a family that owns and works with horses but I married the one who doesn’t like horses, go figure. I haven’t given up hope yet!
