Quality breeders of Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers and Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats
Our journey started over 10 years ago when we purchased our first Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, and fell in love with the breed. Our focus is to breed Toller's that excel in performance, versatility, temperament and conformation, keeping true to the breed standard and breed the healthiest dogs possible. We are a proud members of the NSDTR Club of Canada and our kennel is registered with the Canadian Kennel Club.
We purchased a 5 acre hobby farm in rural Maple Ridge BC and had a goal of becoming more sustainable. Along with growing our own food we needed the addition of a dairy animal. After much research we decided that Nigerian Dwarf Goats would fit our little homestead perfectly. Their small size has many advantages, including ease of transportation, less feed then larger goats and less intimidating to children and elders. They may be small but this does not stop them from filling the milk pail!
We breed our goats for milk production, conformation and temperament while maintaining the breed standard. Our herd is health tested yearly for Johne's, CAE and CL. We are a registered breeder with Canadian Livestock Registry and members of the BC Goat Association.
