Nigerians are a miniature breed of West African ancestry. Thought to have been a food source for feeding the big cats that where shipped over to the US, the survivors originally lived in zoos.
We are registered breeders of Nigerian Dwarf goats in Nova Scotia.
Our farm is home to the 'Knotty Ash' herd.
We have been raising and breeding Nigerian Dwarf Goats since 2011.
Nigerians have become popular for their small size, great milk and easy to handle personalities. For their size Nigerians produce high quantities of milk with the highest levels of butterfat content, ranging between 6-10%
Since butterfat is what gives milk its sweet flavor, it’s the sweetest, richest milk of all the dairy breeds.
This makes their milk excellent for drinking, cheese and soap making.
