The misadventures of a hobby farmher
C&H Scapegoats is a small hobby farm in the middle of the woods in rural Oregon. We raise Alpine Dairy Goats, Lowline cross cows, chickens, feeder pigs, and the usual mix of giants dogs and stubby tailed cats!
Meet the farmher - C.Bell
Doing my best to raise it, grow it, make it, and can it while swearing like a sailor and drinking way too much coffee and trying not to fall over my littles or give my Better Half a nervous breakdown!
MiniMe, LittleMan, and WeeOne - the littles
Mr.Man - the Better Half
PollyWog - The Brother in Law and our only neighbor
Meet the cows
ClaraBelle is Lowline/Dexter and the boss.
Ruby is MiniHereford/Lowline and a second generation cross. Thus she is solid black. Ruby is unflappable! Seriously, the calmest bovine I've ever met!
Both heifers are bred to a Mini Belted Galloway and we are looking forward to little Oreo calves in September!
Meet the goats!
The Main Milkers: Maggie, Minerva, and Venus. The coming milkers are Sophie, Dixie, and Wynona. They are all Alpines and pretty awesome girls!
The Wether: Lazarus. He's enormous and one of the coolest goats ever!
The Market Does: Penelope, Lettie, Olive, and Gertrude. I'm looking forward to watching these two over the next few years!
The goats are my favorites and they know it!
Misadventures to go!
