We are located in a small Alberta farming community located in the Saddle Hills County, called Fourth Creek. My husband, Shaun, our son, Kaz, and I raise a mostly Kiko trip and help operate a grain farm with my family. We have been raising goats since 2015. Our goal is to become leaders for the goat and Kiko industry.

I currently sit as the Vice President of the Alberta Goat Association and as a Saddle Hills County Ag Service Board member. I grew up on our family farm that was a mix of beef and grain. For the last five years, I’ve gained experience in grain marketing and agronomy while working at Cargill. Shaun is a welder and contracts out to the oilfield and farmers. 

We hold our goats to the highest standards.  We practice “closed herd” and strict biosecurity measures. Our herd has been tested for CAE, Johnes and CL, we have a clean herd. We make sure that our animals are well looked after, cared for and have a hard-culling program. We were included in the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine “Western Canadian Sheep Parasite Study”. So far, our goats are parasite resistant which indicates our goats do not pick up parasites as easily as some herds/breeds. Our kidding rate has been 2.4 kids per doe. Shaun and I are proud Kiko goat producers.
