Thanks for visiting our web site. Please feel free to

Our herd name came from the hill we live on, Addisonian Hill, which is just outside of Ashland, a small north
central Ohio town.
We started with goats in 1984, purchasing two grade
Toggenburgs. In 1985, we purchased a French Alpine doe, and we have continued with them since.
All of the does in our herd can be traced back to this original
doe. We are life members of ADGA.
As for the future, we are not sure
how much showing we will do. We were able to attend 4 shows this
past summer. We strive to breed a structurally correct Alpine. The
herd was appraised in September 2013 and we are very pleased with
their scores. We hope to appraise again in 2016, as we could not
work it into our schedule for 2015.
The does have been on
DHI testing since 2010. Our herd is CL free and very healthy. We
vaccinate with CD&T, use BO-SE and use chemical wormer as needed.
They are offered kelp, sodium bicarb and goat minerals free
choice. We feed 17% commercial goat feed and high quality alfalfa/
alfalfa mixed hay. Our herd always has access to pasture.
The kids are removed
at birth and are hand raised on heat treated colostrum or
replacement colostrum and pasteurized milk. All kids receive
their vaccinations on a schedule and are disbudded at an early

will not be refunded. We do reserve the right to retain kids of
We do sell several
milking does a year, after they are fresh and we can evaluate
them. We get many requests for milking does and we sell them at
very reasonable prices, to good homes. So contact us in early
spring to reserve milking does. Mature bucks are some times
offered for sale also.
Our thanks to all who
purchased stock from us in 2015.
Thanks for looking at our herd!
