About Our Farm
Milky Way Ranch is a local family-run Farm in the midlands of South Carolina. We have been raising Nigerian dwarf dairy goats, producing delicious goat milk products, fresh eggs and hosting a variety of fun activities since 2014.
Our registered Nigerian dwarf goat herd is dual registered with ADGA and AGS. Registered kids can participate in appraisal programs, milk test, and shows. We also have exceptionally well bred unregistered does whose kids are excellent choices for pets or home dairy. They are unregistered because one ancestor did not have papers and the registry is closed for our breed. Our breeding emphasis for both registered and unregistered goats is on good health, temperament, and dairy qualities.
Our herd is lovingly protected by our Anatolian Shepherd Dogs who guard them day and night to keep them safe from predators. We no longer breed livestock guardian dogs because we have our hands full already. We do know of other breeders and can help you find livestock guardian dogs for your herd.
We host a bunch of fun activities that take place throughout the year. Check out our events calendar for upcoming group events, or schedule a private farm tour on the booking tab.
Mission and Aspirations
Our missing is providing education and awareness about dairy goats, producing quality dairy and egg products, and preserving the health and dairy qualities of the Nigerian dwarf dairy goat breed.
Milky Way Ranch began as a three generation farm, inspired by the eldest generation, who had a dream of starting a farm together. Middle generation began researching dairy goats and came across photos of Nigerian dwarf goat kids. That sealed the deal. The elder of our farm family now watches over us from heaven and cares for our animals who have gone on to the eternal pasture. The youngest is now grown and works full time as a teacher. That leaves the middle generation carrying on the farm dream and helping ensure that fresh milk and adorable goats will be around for future generations to enjoy.
