Thanks for visiting our web site. Please
feel free to
us if you have any questions about our
goats. Some of the does pictured have 12 hours of milk, or less, in
the pictures that were taken at home. We are not great at taking

Our herd name came from the hill we
reside 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. In 2019 we received a
certificate of recognition from the state of Ohio for our 35th
anniversary of breeding dairy goats. We strive to breed a structurally correct
alpine. The herd was appraised in September of 2019 and we are very
pleased with their scores. We put the does on milk test again in
In the summer of 2019, we were able to
attend 5 shows. Three of our does finished their championships
and CH Sydnee had two Best
Doe In Show wins. Three more of our does were awarded superior
genetics in 2019. No shows were attended in 2020 due to none
being held in Ohio. We did however receive two important
designations in 2020. SG Lotus
was awarded Elite Doe status for her milk production.
Loois was named to the Young
Sire Development list.
Our herd is CAE

alfalfa/alfalfa mixed hay. Our herd always has access to

Prices are for
pre-ordered kids and a $100 deposit will hold the kid of your
choice. Kids will need to be picked up at three to four weeks of
age. If the kid you select is not born, your deposit will be
promptly refunded or you may select another kid. If the buyer
decides to cancel the ordered kid, the money will not be
refunded. We do reserve the right to retain kids of our
choosing. Kids can be shipped out of Cleveland, OH, with buyer
paying all expenses involved.
We do sell several
milking does a year, after they are fresh and we can evaluate
them. 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 2020.
Thanks for looking at our herd!
