This dairy business has taken on a life of its own. From the beginning, we have given God the credit, worked hard at something we love to do, and followed the sometimes rocky road that was in front of us. One of the first examples of how things just "happen" out here is the acquisition of our herd sire. We didn't know anything about goat breeders back then. When Wendell called Louise at Six M Galaxy, she had just had a cancellation on a buck that had been reserved. We were planning our trip to the SF Bay area as soon as he hung up the phone. The trip was smooth and we had him home with two other kids to add to our new goat family and one kid that is now at Black Mesa Ranch. Today, Comet is doing a fantastic job for us. Sadly, his dam died unexpectedly from moldy hay last summer. She still made the ADGA Top Ten list though she died prior to finishing her lactation. THAT is how productive she was. This photo was taken May 2010. Here's to Noel ...

Our farm is located in Buckeye in an area known as Rainbow Valley. To get here you must cross the Gila River. Dean Rd. does not go through. Please call if you have any questions! 623-936-3355 11300 S DEAN RD: I-10 to JACKRABBIT TRL EXIT, then SOUTH APPX 9 MILES to NARRAMORE, turn RIGHT (WEST) for 2 MILES. Pavement will end and the road will turn NORTH onto DEAN. You will travel .6 of a mile more to the dairy. We are the VERY last place on the LEFT on DEAN RD. When you see the DEAD END sign you're almost here ... Keep on going! Look for the second red and white building. This is the barn and it is where you will enter. When traveling south of HWY 85, JACKRABBIT TRL WILL BECOME TUTHILL RD. You probably won’t notice the name change but, you will need to remember this on your way home as you will need to turn left onto TUTHILL from NARRAMORE instead of JACKRABBIT TRL. Hope to see you soon!
